About

Tell us how you feel about our product

With Flipaw your dog gets a voice

Ever wondered what your dog is up to during the day ? Now they can tell you.

Introducing Flipaw – the world’s only collar that helps you stay connected with your dog through text messages, Facebook posts or tweets.

Don’t settle for a dog collar that just gives you boring data about their activity. Get personal messages from them about their life.

Its like you’re chatting with your best friend. Because let’s face it. You are!

How it works

Use cases

Endless combinations

Each dog is unique and lives a different story. We knew we needed a way to tell their stories in a most personalised and accurate way. That’s why we created an algorithm that will use the variables as shown below. Those variables are highly important as they define the dog’s environment and will increase the accuracy of each message.

Our algorithm is based on other artificial intelligence algorithms. In order for them to work properly, they need to be fed by a set of data. The more data, the more accurate the algorithm becomes. Today, our team of writers has achieved to draft more than 2000 stories. As soon as dog lovers will start using Flipaw, the crowdsourced data will generate more and more diversity.

And there is more

Product Overview

Matching your dog's style

Flipaw comes in 2 versions, with or without a GPS chip embedded into the collar, both in an exquisite leather collar. In order to perfectly fit the neck of your dog, the collars are available in 3 sizes (Small/Medium/Large).

 The Story

 The Team

A glance at the artificial intel

You must be wondering how will your dog say what he’s doing. Will it always be the same message ? We created a special tool that will learn new sentences and new personality profiles everyday as Flipaw is being used. We started by creating a lot of them but the crowdsourced users will really make it richer everyday.

We are crossing all the data and enriching the database with accurate sentences that will fit each dog’s personality.

Proof of Concept

The following video clips demonstrates how the Flipaw collar interacts with the patches.

In the following first example we placed a patch next to the trash bin. When the dog goes near the trash the patch interacts with the collar and sends some information that we can collect and with which we can feed our algorithm to trigger a story or message. An example of this info can be seen in the following screenshot and includes time, patch name, temperature, noise, activity, distance, weather conditions, duration of proximity with the patch (determined by time in/out) etc. All those variables are necessary to feed the algorithm to generate personal and most accurate messages. 

The next example shows the activity data we can retrieve from the collar.

This data will be used to generate messages but also to monitor the activity and health of your pall. Our algorithm can detect patterns that can be used to determine whether your dog is sleeping, running, rolling, playing, etc. The more data we’ll collect, the more accurate the algorithm will detect those patterns and even trigger new ones.

Risks and challenges

The production of the Flipaw collar will definitely be in Belgium, as well as its assembly and packaging. That choice ensures that our development team would be able to follow the different processes of manufacturing.

As on the otherside for the components of Flipaw we rely on international suppliers, we may experience challenges along the way that are outside our control. However, we are mitigating supply risks by working with a well-established Belgian electronic services supplier: the Dekimo Group.

For the collar itself, we have partnered with an international distributor based in Amsterdam.

We will communicate on the different steps of production all along the Flipaw’s journey we share with you.We will always be transparent and inform you of any potential challenges and delays along the way.
