PlayDog is a 'Make it Yourself', interactive game for dogs.
It's an open product, built out of 3D printed parts & off the shelf electronics. You make it entirely on your own and control it via a dedicated PlayDog Web App.
Based on principals of operational conditioning. It's built of multiple bases positioned around your house and it executes random running laps from base to base, ending at the feeding base - where, after a successful lap, your pet receives a small portion of his daily diet.
There are dog feeders, there are games for dogs, even interactive ones. But a 100% autonomous interactive game for dogs which plays and feeds your dog when his home alone - only PlayDog!
PlayDog is built using only 3D printed parts & off the shelf electronics.
The best part about the PlayDog project is that it opens the door to the pet industry where we are yet to see a great deal of technology being used, and it is also a DIY/Open Source project. I often hear that people who live and work in the inner city don’t get much time to spend with their pets, and this device offers a solution to that very problem. I think this entry also opens our eyes to the relationships between our pets and people and pets and technology.
