About this project

Introducing: The Anthouse Pet Companion Robot 

Imagine it- you're favorite loved one leaves you every day and you have no reason why. Left alone to amuse yourself. This is what pets all around the globe experience everyday.

That's why we decided to change this common issue by inventing the Anthouse Pet Companion Robot. Anthouse is going to change the way owners and their pets interact. You're looking at a smart, app-controlled robot that allows pet owners to connect with their beloved pets no matter the location. The Anthouse has some pretty awesome features that will solve the predicament between Man's Best Friend and his or her dedicated caregivers.

SMART APP WIFI CONTROL: The Anthouse is a smart-app controlled robot. From the smart-app (available for both Android and iOS), you can have full control of your robot, running all the functions from treat dispensing, speed control, video recording and more. Quickly and easily connect with your pet from anywhere.

VIDEO GUARDIANSHIP: Wondering what your dog might be up to at home? Use the Anthouse camera to see live-stream video from your Anthouse robot to see and interact with your dog. Easily record and save or share videos. 

TAKE PHOTOS: Even when you're not around, you can still capture those priceless moments of your pet. Easily take photos and save to your phone and share with your friends on your favorite social media.

SPEED CONTROL: Set the Anthouse Robot to multiple speeds from your smart app following slow (turtle) to fast (rabbit) mode to keep your robot moving at the desired pace.

WALKIE-TALKIE: Using the smart app, you can press on the Walkie-Talkie button to speak and project out your voice to your pet via the built-in speaker on the Anthouse robot.

PLAY FETCH: The Anthouse has a mini-tennis ball launcher that allows you to play fetch with your dog. You can set how far you want the ball to launch, from 2.5 / 5 / 8 meters. 

TREAT DISPENSER: Serve your dog treats remotely via one-touch automated treat dispensing. You can set the amount of servings you wish to dispense, from a small, medium, to large size servings.

WIRELESS AUTOMATED CHARGING: Anthouse is smart. Whenever the robots battery gets low it will automatically search for its wireless charging station and locate it for wireless charging of its battery.

 

OBSTACLE AVOIDANCE: The Anthouse was built with a smart infrared system to detect any nearby objects and automatically redirect to avoid collision.

We are a team of designers, developers, and engineers. Collectively, we've been working in the space of robotics and IOT development for close to 10 years and have extensive knowledge about how to make advanced consumer electronic products.

Anthouse Technology Ltd., is small self-funded company with limited resources. We’ve poured our hearts over the last 2 years into creating a great product fit for the dog owners around the globe and we’re looking to find others on Kickstarter help support the mission.

We have already invested substantially in the design process as well as getting ready to bring Anthouse to the market and need backer support.

Use of Funds:

As a team we're looking to raise $50,000 to help cover our mold and development costs for the Anthouse. The costs of development are quite high, so as we don't expect to raise 100% of the funds to cover both development, tooling, materials, and production, but we know that $50,000 will be a huge help in ensuring a successful launch to market.

 Press Kit:

If you are media or interested backer and want to see more high resolution photos of the Anthouse, please follow the link HERE.

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Although we already have manufacturing and fulfillment partners set, there is always the risk that unforeseen obstacles may get in the way. If an issue does arise that will slow down production or shipment of your order, we will let our backers know.

We appreciate you being an early supporter and will work hard to maintain your trust through communication and transparency.
