Oracle IoT Device to Translate Cat Meows: Java SE Embedded on Raspberry Pi

Here's a new Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) Device that translates cat meows into readable text. You just need a Raspberry Pi device, a USB connected mic, and Java SE Embedded technology to program the meow-to-text recognition software using cloud-based, kitty-crowd-sourced, big data to do the translations.

The inventor here at Oracle was quoted as saying:

 "I was watching my cat the other day,
  and I thought, 'I wonder what my cat is 
  thinking...  If there were only a way to 
  use an IoT device to translate my cat's 
  thoughts and meows into human readable
  text.'". "A couple days later, I had a 
  prototype with parts from old stereo 
  equipment and a Raspberry Pi, and now, 
  nine months later, I have a $350 billion 
  startup company."
Thus was born the Oracle IoT Cat Meowerator, a next-generation automated cat translation device that taps into millions of cat meows stored over the web on an Oracle cloud database to deliver carefully translated meow-to-text conversions to your device.

The device, now available on Amazon.com for $299.99, includes a mic, a stuffed bird toy with catnip, meaty treats, and a Raspberry Pi controller board. It uses a Realtek 802.11b/g/n controller to link to the Internet over a home WiFi net like another access point and Java SE Embedded technology to let you know, "April Fools!".
