You hate leaving your pet at home but you have to go to work or school. Enter Petcube, a home gadget that lets you stay close to your furry friend even when you're away. Equipped with a wide angle camera, microphone, speakers, and laser pointer, the sleek aluminum and glass cube enables you to watch, talk, and play with your pet remotely using the accompanying mobile app.
About 20 percent of Americans leave their TV on to keep their pets entertained while they're not at home. Petcube offers a more personalized, interactive alternative. Exercise your pet using the safe, low-intensity laser pointer; call them when they are out of sight; and capture and share photos and videos of them – all in real time.
In addition, you can access public Petcubes and play with other pets and talk with the owners. The Petcube team is aiming to get some Petcubes into animal shelters as well, so orphaned animals can join in on the fun and maybe even get adopted.
