Submission + - Play with cats remotely (

codegen writes: The LA Times is reporting about a new project at a LA animal shelter that lets people play with cats remotely. There is a web camera and a cat toy on a servo that you can manipulate from a web interface (implemented in silverlight). The main idea is to increase adoption of cats by letting people play with them. Once the novelty for people not in LA(and the slashdot effect) wears off , it just might help.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
