These cats have facial expressions, roll over on their tummy, "lick" their paws, a patented purr box, a sleep mode, and have been shown to provide therapeutic value to the elderly. Maybe the act of receiving and giving unconditional love, even from something without a beating heart, is enough to bring us joy.

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

What role will creative technology play as we continue to develop solutions for caregivers?
