Calling all dog lovers! We’re filing this in the “awesome” drawer and praying this Kickstarter project sees the light of day. Anthouse Pet Companion is a super cool-looking robot that keeps your pet company while you’re away from home.
Anthouse Pet Companion
The Anthouse is awesome on so many levels! It connects to WiFi and you control it via an Android (or iOS) app on your phone. It offers live stream video monitoring and recording, so you see exactly what your pet is getting into while you’re not around.
Even cooler, you can take photos with the Anthouse, so you don’t have to miss those amazing moments just because you’re not there to see them first hand. It also features a walkie-talkie, so can actually talk to your pet, not just see them.
Additionally, the Anthouse can play fetch with your pup, with three different gear-driven settings for 2.5 / 5 / 8 meter tosses. This part might be tricky, however, if you live in a house with a bunch of glass or easily-breakable objects.
Play fetch with your pooch from anywhere with an Internet connection!
The robot can also dispense treats in fixed quantities and at set times, and you can record your pet while he or she is eating. Ok – that might be taking things just a bit too far in the creepy pet/owner relationship department, but I’m not judging.
To add icing to the cake, the Anthouse is also super intelligent. Whenever the robot’s battery gets low it will automatically search for its wireless charging station and locate it for wireless charging of its battery.
Tell me THAT isn’t cool.
This project has been in the works since late 2015 and orders for the Anthouse are expected to be fulfilled in the beginning of February 2018. The project is currently at just over half of its $50k goal on Kickstarter, with about two weeks left to go.
Here’s a look at the costs to back and what you’ll get in exchange for your money:
