01/12/2014, Dogs, just like humans, need their exercise as well, and one of the ways to tell if there’s something wrong with your dog is by looking at their activity levels. If a dog is sick and unwell, chances are it is less willing to run around and play like it normally would. Monitoring your dog’s activity levels is one of the things the creators of FitBark are hoping to do. […]
10/28/2013, We’re sure there are many of you who can’t live without having your pet by your side everywhere you go, which results of the constant tug of war between going to work or just quitting altogether to spend every moment with your pet. If you’ve ever experienced this kind of heartache, then PetChatz will help make things a little better during those moments when you can’t be with your pet.
09/13/2013, If there is one huge advantage that a robotic dog like the Sony Aibo of yore has over actual dogs, it would be this – they do not bark at strangers, won’t run around as they please, and most importantly, there is no poop at all to pick up after. Of course, those cons are not enough to substitute for the presence of an actual pet dog, this I am […]
01/31/2013, Cats might not be man’s best friend, but there is a segment of the population who love all things feline as well. Flipper, whom you see in the video above, is a cat who was born with a twisted spine, and that basically sucks since she is unable to walk with all fours being on the same plane. That translates to a disabled cat, one that has to drag her […]
08/16/2012, Earlier this morning, we took a look at the Dog Caller which will inform you on your smartphone should the temperature of your pooch and its surroundings reach dangerously high levels that heat stroke is a possibility, so that you will be able to take some preventive measures. Well, another way of going around this issue would be to purchase the ClimateRight dog house, where this 2,500 BTU unit is […]
08/16/2012, Summers can be sweltering, where the mercury shoots up all the way – and we humans who have the advantage of air conditioning might not figure out just how it feels like to be a black Labrador Retriever with a double coat. Good thing there are those cooling down coats that dogs can wear to keep themselves cool, while pooches in the future might soon be able to wear special […]
08/02/2012, What is the world coming to these days? Well, some of us tend to treat our pets better than our human friends and relatives, which certainly raises eyebrows. If you thought that your cat should share your love of Justin Bieber, then you might want to consider getting it a pair of cat headphones from Sol Republic. What’s that, you ask? Yes, cat headphones – which is certainly a confirmation […]
01/04/2012, Dog’s are truly man’s best friend – and they can be properly trained to help us out in different situations such as search and rescue efforts, which is where the Paws doggie-cam comes in – being short for Portable All-terrain Wireless System. After all, a dog has an extremely keen sense of smell, and it is far more agile and capable of getting through to those nooks and crannies which […]
08/16/2011, There are probably people out there who treat their pets as more than just animals, even treating them as though they are family, so we can only imagine the pain and anguish they must feel when they lose their pets who may have wandered off and have gotten lost. Given that GPS dog collars aren’t exactly new, the Tagg Pet Tracker has added its own take on the existing technology.
09/19/2010, Can a robot really “feel” without using algorithms? No matter what, emotions cannot be programmed into a circuit board – at least that’s what we think, although a very close imitation could very well come into play that might fool people into thinking that a robot is capable of feeling, and hence, “love”. Researchers in Taiwan are looking at neural networks as the next frontier in helping them break the […]
06/02/2010, Twitter seems to be making pretty good headway into all sorts of devices, such as dresses and lights, now the folks over at Sony Computer Science Laboratories (CSL) have exhibited a lifeblogging device for cats which can support Twitter. Yes, we’re talking about letting your cat tweet about its exciting life. The device is equipped with a camera, accelerometer, and GPS chip. It’s able to transfer data to a PC via […]
04/13/2010, Messenger dogs have always been a boon on the battlefield in the past, where these faithful four legged animals will be able to ferry important messages across bloody battle fields which could mean having one’s ally send reinforcements in the nick of time. Laura Boffi has come up with the interactive messenger uniform for dogs. This is currently in the conceptual stage, and will function on the premise where messenger […]
04/12/2010, If your cat demands only the best, then you’ll need a good litter box to keep it satisfied. While it isn’t decked with gold and jewels, the Bionaire Odor Grabber Litter Box should be enough to satisfy your kitty. Instead of letting the smell of kitty litter turn guests away from your home, the Bionaire Odor Grabber filters the air coming from the litter box, pushing it through a filter, […]
03/19/2010, Bathing a dog could prove to be quite a challenge, although we’re sure it is much easier than doing so to a cat. Well, unless you have a water-loving breed like a Labrador Retriever, those who find it challenging might want to move to Japan, knowing that the Land of the Rising Sun has a special dog bathing machine which not only helps make your pooch clean, but also comes […]
