Inspirational appetizers on unusual startups, emerging trends and bleeding-edge research

Paws for thought

A stroll in the woods can help reduce stress levels; so too words of encouragement from nursery children.

Now a Belgian sound designer is lifting people’s moods with the noise of cats purring.

Visitors to his website include those without cats of their own who nevertheless enjoy the soothing strain.

With the help of a generator, purring can be tailored to individual needs.

There’s everything from ‘sleepy’ to ‘happy’, not to mention ‘relaxed’ and ‘overjoyed’.

And it seems the sounds are contagious, with users deploying them to get to sleep at night, and even, in some cases, to manage panic attacks.

It’s not the first home-office innovation to simulate company. Real cats like it too. Purr-fect!
