We humans love to have our fair share of devices to help make life better, but what about our four legged furry kids? Wagz might be on to something new here with a dog collar wearable that will make up part of the very first connected pet home system in the world. Known as the Wagz Explore Smart Collar, it will rely on data-driven insights in order to assist dog owners when it comes to tracking, monitoring, and communicating with their pets in a whole new groundbreaking manner.
Every dog deserves its very own collar, and this is exactly what the folks over at BLACK+DECKER have done, coming up with the all new Smart Dog Collar. This is a path that is less traveled by BLACK+DECKER, where through their licensing program, they have taken the step to expand into pet technology. Wagz, Inc. is their new partner in its licensing program, and apart from the Smart Dog Collar, other kinds of connected pet products include the Smart Dog Feeder and a Smart Dog Door. Let us take a closer look at the BLACK+DECKER Smart Dog Collar for now, which will be different from a regular dog collar.
Dogs are slobbery balls of energy that are in a constant state of motion when they’re not being adorable on the couch or patiently begging for food. Sometimes though, they start being cute on the couch more than they should and pack on weight. We’re all prone to weight gain, but when it comes to … Read more
When it comes to pets, there are two categories of pet owners. The first would be those who see them as just animals, and there is not much emotional attachment with the pet in question. Even if it falls sick, sending it to the vet to have it put to sleep is seen to be more of a rite of passage or a necessary evil, and you will not have any kind of emotional upheaval. However, the other kind of pet owner would be those who lavish so much love on the furry kid, outsiders might start to wonder whether it is appropriate to do so when their own children are neglected. Pets do have their fair share of accessories in the past, and this Kickstarter project would contribute to a growing list in the form of the Scollar Smart Collar.
Vacuum cleaning technology has certainly come a long way since its early days, where you need to manually drag a vacuum cleaner all over the floor, while making sure that the bag, once full, is replaced, otherwise you would end up with a bigger mess to clean should it end up burst. From there, we have evolved to bagless vacuum cleaners, and eventually, smart vacuum cleaners that are able to function autonomously. Here is one model that targets those who love to have their furry kids stay under the same roof as them – the bObsweep PetHair Plus multifunctional autonomous floor cleaner that boasts of the strongest, most powerful suction to date.
Having a pet can be a therapeutic experience – it not only helps you melt the day’s stress away, it will also be able to ensure that you do not end up too lonely at the end of the day. Having said that, having a pet would also mean added responsibilities, and some folks would go all out – as in, even getting their pets their own room, or even their own air conditioner. Well, pet lovers also have another issue to think about when they want to jet off for a holiday – who will take care of their babies? Petzila has an idea if you need to be away for maybe a day or two, as it has just launched the PetziConnect Treat Cam.
There is this unique bond between man and animal – and some of us have learned to domesticate these animals to have them end up as pets over the many thousands of years, where both dogs and cats happen to be among the most popular pets worldwide. Cats can be aloof at times, and noisy … Read more
If you’ve ever set down a food dish with a dog in the house, you know that they’ll come tearing into the room and be done eating in less than a minute. This can lead to an upset stomach, or like a toddler with too many cheerios, choking. If you wish your pooch would slow down, but don’t want to be forced to wait on them to eat tiny portions before refilling their dish, then getting a bowl that makes them work a bit more for their food might be in order.
Pets are wonderful creatures to have around, especially when they bring some much needed joy and peace at the end of the work day. There is nothing quite like returning home to find Fido wagging its tail vigorously, as though your arrival back home is the only thing on its mind (and chances are, it is!). Well, while many of us would love to be able to bring about our pets with us wherever we go, even on long haul holidays, that is simply not possible unless you’re a super rich mogul with the means to do so. Leaving them alone at home without anyone else around is also not an option, as there is poop to clean and of course, feeding times to worry about. Enter this Kickstarter project that is known as Nibbles, a smart pet feeder with an integrated camera which allows you to feed and watch your pet from your smartphone, from anywhere at anytime!
When you happen to have a dog, it is imperative that one be a responsible pet owner and give that dog what it deserves – a number of square meals each day depending on its age, breed and activity level, daily walks and exercise, some play time, as well as the customary visit to the … Read more
