Cats may love batting at tantilizingly-dangled kitty toys, but most of us can’t dangle those toys for our felines all day long – not even by remote control. The Solar Chaser was designed to pick up the slack, using an integrated solar panel to power its toy-bobbing arm.

Users simply stick the Solar Chaser in a sunny window, using its built-in suction cups. Once its power switch is flipped and sunlight hits its panel, it will begin swinging and jigging its arm, causing a toy attached to a ribbon at its end to dance around. As long as the sun keeps shining (even indirectly, apparently), the cat can keep playing.
