Yume Neko Smile: Japanese for “Soul Devourer”

When you stare into the abyss,
the abyss stares back at you.
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 – 1900)

The opening scene of this snuff film advertisement is one of the only times when I have truly felt that the Nietzsche quote is so true, I would think he owned a Yume Neko Smile. Yume Neko Smile or the Dream Cat Smiling is the latest machination from Sega Toys. Sporting 5 sensors, Yume Neko communicates with you just like a real cat.

All that means is that it will leave hair on your couch and not do anything, just like a real cat. The only difference is that this one harvests your life energy slowly via contact with you. Unless you look into Yume Neko’s eyes, then it is yume time for you….permanently.
