Dan Provost and Tom Gerhardt Based in Austin Texas have created a new cat toy that takes the form of a smart laser that can be connected directly to your iPhone.
The Obi laser toy for cats can be controlled and programmed directly from your smartphone using the companion application, and projects a laser dot which keeps your cat active even when you are not at home to play with it.
Watched a video below to learn more about this new cat toy that is taken to Kickstarter to raise the required $120,000 needs to make the jump into production. Its developers explain a little more:
We both love our pets, and assume you do too (love your pets, that is). Keeping your pet active is important for their health and well being, which is why we made Obi. Obi is a simple and beautiful device that sits on a shelf or mantle in your home. When activated, it shoots a laser, something most cats (and some dogs) go wild for. Using your iPhone or iPad, you can control the laser manually, or set it up in automatic mode, where you can customize the way Obi behaves.
We like to spoil our pets with toys, but one thing we have noticed about the pet toy market is the vast majority of them are, well, underdesigned, to put it kindly. We wanted to design something that you’d be happy to invite into your home.
