Crave has visited the effects of sunlight on human behavior more than we care to remember , but it's all for a good cause. If a few colored lights can stave off violence in the workplace (namely ours), than we're all for it. One thing we'd never anticipated, however, is a product that can have similar results on non-human beings.

The "Fauna Sauna" (we're not making this up) uses solar-like radiant heat, sans ultra-violet rays, "to bring healing to your pet right in your home," according to InventorSpot. It's even available in two versions--"Classic" and "Pro"--depending on the severity of your pet's maladies.

This form of "far infrared" heat, according to the company, can treat everything from arthritis to skin wounds--and, of course, stress. Then again, maybe Rover wouldn't be so tense if he wasn't so freaked out by you hoarding his fur .
