This small device allows users to talk to, play with and watch their pets when apart, for the reassurance that they are happy and safe at home.
Petcube Play is an indoor camera compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones. It features a built-in laser toy and two-way audio, as well as more advanced features to monitor a pet’s activity.
Petcube Play launched at the Wearable Technology Show in London last month, following a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter last year.
“Our co-founder Alex had a chihuahua with severe anxiety issues and leaving this dog home alone wasn’t really an option” Petcube co-founder Andrey Klen told Dezeen. “Obviously he needed a distraction, and that’s when Alex came up with the idea.”
Play’s laser toy and two-way audio are designed for users to talk and play with their pets at anytime. There is also the option of autoplay if the user is too busy to manually control the device.
The three-inch-wide device also has advanced camera features, including 24/7 video recording and night vision, along with sound and motion detection that notifies users of any prominent movements or disturbances. Petcube believes that collectively these features have the potential to save a pet’s life, should it be in danger in an owner’s absence.
