Newport Beach, California (PRWEB) November 09, 2017
Peddy, an amiable and innovative robot that provides pets with nourishment and care, is now available on Kickstarter. With its various features and friendly design, Peddy, the conjunction of the words “pet” and “buddy”, makes a great companion for all pets. Peddy is perfectly designed for busy owners who cannot consistently be with their pets because of work and other obligations. Many of its features are designed for pets to thrive even in the temporary absence of their owners. The real-time two-way video call function enables communication between pets and theirs owners anytime and anywhere.
“We created Peddy, so owners would not have to constantly worry about their pets upon leaving the house,” said Founder and Ceo James Choi. “With the autoplay mode, Peddy can be automated to move, monitor the house, play with your pet, feed your pet, help your pet exercise and display your pet’s favorite live or recorded content on the tablet screen.”
When pet owners spend the day away from their pets or go on vacations, they typically opt to either leave their pets at home alone or hire petsitters. With Peddy, owners can be assured that their pet is fed, entertained and well-cared for at all times. With the automatic food dispenser, the user’s pet will be fed at a scheduled regimen and with the auto play mode, pets can enjoy the video and photo playback displayed on the screen.
Peddy comes with an easy-to-use mobile application and tablet that enable all of its features, such as feeding, monitoring and video-calling. The robot itself is shaped like a small dog and includes a space for the tablet to serve as the display screen. Peddy is equipped with two wheels, which allow it to move on its own at various speeds. With its movement ability, Peddy can take photos from multiple angles in the case of an emergency in the home and can send the pictures directly to the user’s smartphone.
Peddy’s features include:
- Two-way video call: Real-time communication and face-to-face interaction between pets and their owners
- Autoplay: Automated playtime to promote exercise and a selection of photos and videos for entertainment
- Home security: Two wheels and four ultrasonic wave sensors to enable movement and monitoring of the home through real-time video
