Thanks to technology, Kickstarter, and an everlasting assumption that your pet reciprocates the love you have for them, you can now play with and feed your furry companion with the all new Petcube. Born as a Kickstarter with a dream in 2013, the Petcube is about to officially hit the market after 2 years of development and testing.
“With the introduction of Petcube Bites and Petcube Play, we want to put pet parents’ anxieties to rest and inspire new forms of human-pet interactions. We create products that enable people to virtually care for their pets and always feel connected.”
There are two products, sold separately, that keep you and your pet interacting throughout the day. The first (Petcube Bites) is a machine that tosses treats to your dog on command or per schedule. The other (Petcube Play) is a maneuverable laser pointer to keep your pet slim. With a 1080p HD video, 4x digital zoom, night vision, and automatic refill delivery technology, you’ll be able to interact in real time with your dog, cat, or whatever other animal you may be trying to train by way of two-way audio. And because it really is a full-stack solution, Petcube Bites uses the Amazon Dash Replenishment Service (DRS) to track when your pet’s treats are running low, and prompt you to place a refill order.
Jesus. What ever happened to alone time? – pets everywhere
“As pet parents ourselves, we want to see products for pets that are designed with as much care as products for people,” said Yaroslav Ahznyuk, CEO and co-founder of Petcube. “We’re looking into what’s possible with technology and creating innovative products that connect people and their pets. I believe five years from now, most pets will be connected through technology.”
Here’s a thought, invent pet thumbs so they can use snapchat and save us all $?
Both products are currently available for pre-order on Kickstarter, with the Petcube Play priced at $119 and the Petcube Bites coming in at $149. But act quickly, they will most likely sell out quickly because when it comes to spoiling your furriest companion, American’s have no mercy.
