On the pitch during a recent meeting in And Brinc Headquarters of Hong Kong, Barcelona-based team behind Pitcair Kibos It was quick to point out that most of the millennium consider pets to be "family members". This type of statement is manifested in different ways, of course, but for many, this means preparing cooked meals at home for dogs and cats.
As a rabbit owner, fortunately this often means rinsing some watercress in the tub once a day. For those other pet owners, the probability is somewhat more complicated, where they put the same work or even more in preparing meals for their fellow furriers.
The pitch behind Kibus is trying to divide the difference. The company's device is designed to offer something like a home-cooked meal for a dog or cat with a fraction of the effort required. The system accepts plastic boxes filled with freeze dried pet food. Pour some water and the system will heat it, and cook the food in the process.
The company will launch a Kickstarter product sale campaign, which is currently in the prototype. At launch, it will run about 199 euros. This initial version will include a user-fillable quarter, but in the future, the company plans to reduce these already diverse types, which clearly follow some kind of ink cartridge approach to liquidating the system into cash.
The pods will work for about 1 euro a day, where the machine distributes food to pets from time to time five times a day. Each one must last for about a week to get an average pet, or somewhere in the neighborhood for three days for a larger dog. To start, the company offers five different dining options (two for cats, three for dogs), with more options.
Users can remotely monitor the system and program their voice voice to connect to pets when the feeding time is. The second version of the device will also include a camera to monitor pets from afar.
