Pets: an alliance of nature and high-tech

Human psychology has not changed: people still like to interact with pets and be surrounded by beauty. The only thing that is is in question is the form and comfort of these fast-changing conditions.

Scientists propose genetically modified organisms as pets: small copies of large animals, hypoallergenic cats and designer aquarium fish - luminescent or with colours and patterns that can be chosen.

For those who, for various reasons, cannot take care of or interact with real animals, but desire such a thing, scientists can offer interactive robotic pets. They help to maintain a zeal for life and the emotional well-being of elderly or sick people, hospitalised children ,and many others.

ProGamer7520 the pets will be like robots and pandas will disappear. 22 May 2019
Neil "small copies of large animals"? That's a no. AI pets, perhaps. Robot pets will be the only form of robotic companion that will truly succeed. 08 Apr 2019
paolo Rather than genetically modified organisms, I think it'll be AI pets such as today's Pou or Tamagotchi into a new level 06 Feb 2019
Kyle Johnson More likely are digital pets in mixed or augmented reality with advanced AI. 06 Feb 2019
Kevin Estes Robots cannot replace pets. But humans can be replaced by robots. All training and maintenance of pets will be by each pet's robot buddy. 06 Feb 2019
Allen Shepard The past is a great predictor of future trends and forces. Both traditional and "exotic" pets will be there. The open feel of a smaller place seems real. Heat capture and reuse to warm cold water would also be in place. 06 Feb 2019
