People spend millions and millions of dollars each year on toys and other items for their beloved pets. A new project has turned up on Kickstarter that may be the coolest way to keep your cat entertained when you're not home I've ever seen. The product is called Petcube.
Petcube promises to let you play games with your pet, watch them, and talk to them using a mobile app anytime you want from anywhere. The project hit Kickstarter seeking $100,000 and has already raised $110,712 with 33 days to go.
At the time of writing the project has 888 backers. A pledge of $149 or more will get you a Petcube at a discount of about $50 from the retail price the developer is targeting. This is also a Kickstarter project with flex goals and at $150,000 the developers will and sound alerts, and $200,000 they will add an autoplay mode, and at $250,000 they will add motion detection. With 33 days to go meeting all of those goals certainly isn't out of the realm of possibility.
