Remote pet-cam

We don't know if we like the product or the website's Janglish translations better but Japanese company Matsushita has developed a remote Pet-cam which senses Fifi's movements and snaps a digital photo while you're not at home. Named "Peppot Camera" (the translation failed this one) the camera sends the images to your email so you can check up on Rover while on vacation. The website notes that pets are very important to Japan's childless couples as well as unmarried women without kids (we're taking the liberty of assuming "the celibacy woman" means an unmarried woman), so its only natural for people to want to check up via photo on their house-bound pet.
