PetBot: Smartphone For Pets | What You Need To Know

Your pet is only with you for a small portion of your life.

But to your pet, you are his entire life. So wouldn’t it be nice if you could spend your precious time together in constant contact — no matter what life throws your way?

Imagine giving your dog a treat while you’re stuck at the office, or soothing away his fears by talking to him while you’re in line at the grocery store. You’d never have to worry about your pet being anxious and depressed again.

That is exactly what the creators of PetBot want to achieve.

PetBot is an in-home camera designed to sense your pet’s presence, take pictures and videos of your furry friend, and then send them directly to your phone for you to share them on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Vine.

Along with capturing your pet’s movements while you’re away, PetBot also dispenses treats, plays music, and can even play a recording of your voice.

Such features make PetBot’s slogan of Petcam For People, Smartphone For Pets make sense!

Unfortunately, PetBot isn’t available for sale in stores or online yet. Before continuing any further, PetBot needs to raise $80,000 in funding by October 15, 2015.

PetBot’s future appears promising, though, as the company has raised $33,497 in the past 15 days. All proceeds have been generously donated through PetBot’s Indiegogo page.

If you’re interested in getting a early-bird PetBot cam for the discount price of $189 + shipping and handling, visit PetBot’s Indigogo page (linked above) and claim yours while supplies last. Estimated delivery dates on early-bird PetBots is May 2016.

Technology is making leaps and bounds in the pet world, but have creators gone too far? Will you buy a PetBot for your home, or do you think the idea is far-fetched?
