Mr. Snuggles iPhone app wants your love

From the Mr. Snuggles website:

Mr. Snuggles is a pocket kitty companion for iPhone/iPod touch who wants your love.Pet Mr. Snuggles to smooth his hair or rub him against the grain to muss up his fur.

Mr. Snuggles loves the attention and will lull you into a stress-free mood with his soft purring.

Tell you what, Mr. Snuggles totally got Gray Cat's attention when I played the video up top.

The app was created by Dr. Gus K. Lott III, currently Senior Instrument Development Engineer at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Ashburn, Virginia.

The physics of Mr. Snuggles

The Mr. Snuggles app is an interactive, real-time physical simulation of thousands of virtual cat hairs. The application leverages the powerful graphics capabilities of the iPhone and iPod touch Platforms.The application was designed and tested on an iPhone 3G for "lowest common denominator" performance optimization.

The hairs respond to directional multi-touch interface in a fashion similar to a real pet cat. Mr. Snuggles purrs louder as you pet him longer (until reaching a max volume) and whines when you aren't paying attention to him.

I know people like that.

But I digress.

Mr. Snuggles costs 99¢.

Richard Kashdan, please visit the App Store at your convenience: they're holding a copy for you.

I worry of what other apps this app could lead to.

Speaking of apps, anyone out there creative enough to do a limerick on apps?
