10. One more important concern on developing iTreater.

- It can be a home décor  since we  paid attention on its design, as well.  Because you have to stay with your new family member..

   We have attended to the pet Seoul exhibition during 2018.8.3(Fri)-8.5(Sun) at COEX in SEOUL, KOREA. 

iTreater also  had been introduced at one of the BIG global IT show, 2018 MWC(Mobile World Congress) America  in Los Angeles, USA, 2018.9.12(Wed)-9.14(Fri). 

Let's listen to what people said about iTreater at MWCA. :) 

 We will make more good stories with iTreater!! 

 Currently, we do not have the iTreater without LCD. However, we understand that there are pets who do not have any interest in watching video. So we are going to produce the iTreater without LCD and provide it.  

 Three different body colors of iTreater are available  for kickstarters : Black, Red, and White. We categorize these as type A, B and C, respectively and we append  "-1" for the devices which are  equipped with a LCD and "-2" for those which are not. Each can be covered with white or yellow cap, which means the color combination of iTreater is 6.

 Therefore, you  need to decide whether you need an iTreater with or without LCD first. Then please choose the body colors - black(Type A) , red (Type B) or yellow(Type C). Finally, select your choice of the cap color - white or yellow.

The reason we provide these  variety of colors, which can be somewhat complicated is to know the popularity and make the decision of the colors of iTreater for real market selling. Thanks for your support!

  The value of iTreater is to help people who is too busy with their work schedules to raise a pet by providing the functions to treat their pets instead of those pet owners. Using IoT(Internet of Things) technology, we have implemented those functions on iTreater.  

   We have developed three working prototypes and tried to have more field tests. During the field tests, we have found some important issues:

1) Due to its design, iTreater is not good for big sized dogs. We do not recommend to present iTreater to the dog who has a big face with short muzzle.. Sorry Bulldogs.. :)

2) We have realized the LCD screen is located to higher position on the iTreater so it is not comfortable for the small or middle sized dogs to watch their contents. We have decided to exchange the location between button panel and LCD.

Risks and challenges

Currently, we have multiple mockups of iTreater and we are preparing for mass production.
We have rigorously tested our prototypes and have been in the process of getting feedback from pet owners to make iTreater better. However, we are aware that there is still possibility that we need to put additional changes on iTreater to meet manufacturing requirements. Also, while our current plan foresees shipment starting by the beginning of December, delay might be possible. We will keep our backers continuously informed of any updates or changes.
We promise complete transparency, and we will communicate on a regular basis.
Thanks for your warm support!
