What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

If you're like us, your pets are part of your family. Making sure your furry family members have everything they need to thrive is just part of loving them every day.  

Enter Pebby: a smart collar and ball system that gives you access to monitor and entertain your pet from anywhere your cell phone can go.

 

 

 

 

The Pebby pack comes complete with the Pebby™ Ball (with your choice of EASYfix™ magnetic caps so you can customize the look of your Pebby) , PebbyKennel™ charging dock, PebbyCollar™ motion sensor collar,  and, of course, the Pebby app, free to download off iTunes or GooglePlay store.

Pebby is a ball on mission to keep you and your pet together even when you’re not physically there.  Using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology, the Pebby system’s remote controlled ball allows owners to watch, interact, and capture their pet’s cutest moments in real time. A wide-angle fisheye lens feature gives you an optimal view of all the cute things you might have missed while you were away, as well as records, snaps, and shares images and video at the touch of a button.

Time to get back to work? Turn on the Auto-Play function and let Pebby go wild, entertaining Rover while you get back to business. Cats can also play with a specially designed pet and human safe laser, which, as you know, is irresistible for every kitty worth his whiskers!

 

 

No time to play with your pet? No problem! With the Auto-Play mode, you can simply turn it on and let Pebby go crazy to give your pets a fun, active and entertaining time! And not forgetting all the cat lovers out there, we have specifically designed a pet (and human) safe built in laser to make our feline friends go nuts. Watch the snippet of our Kickstarter video below to see Pebby's built-in laser in action!

 

 

No matter where you are in the world, your phone will receive Bark and Nudge Alert notifications to let you know when your pet is itching to play with Pebby. Ready for fun before they are? The 2-way audio and mic system lets you send a “woof,” “meow,” or pre-recorded message of your voice through your phone and get a response in return. Who’s a good boy? Your pup knows!

 

 

With thick shatterproof, replaceable PolyCarbonate casing and our special SHOCK suspension system, Pebby is play-proof even with the most rowdy dogs and cats. Pebby is also waterproof, so it’s still safe if it gets bounced into the water bowl.

 

 

 

 

Are you a pet fashionista? Get the look you want with our EASYfix™ magnetic caps. You can customize your Pebby smart ball with an array of different colors and patterns. There are more designs on the way, so your pet will have the latest look for his favorite interactive toy. Refer to Design & Colors section below to view currently available options that you can choose from.

 

Your Pebby ball can be charged anytime - even if you're not home! Just drive it into it's PebbyKennel and you'll be playing again in no time.

 

 

 

 

Featuring PebbyKennel™: Intelligent, remote self-docking allows wireless charging even if you’re not around. Fast charging, with power status alerts and a long battery life, your pet playtime won't be cut short.  Simply drive the ball near the charging dock and let the auto-align function lock it in! You'll be back to playing in no time!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our PebbyCollar motion sensor syncs with the smart ball and tracks your pet’s activities all day! Using our special technology, you can keep tabs on your fur baby's mobility and activity levels, giving you peace of mind, even when you're not home. 

 

The Pebby app is free to download from iTunes or GooglePlay and allows you to easily live stream video and control all the functions of the Pebby smart ball from virtually anywhere you have access to Internet on your smartphone. The intuitive app interface is easy to use live or in auto-play mode. Tap the cat or dog icon to send your pets a “woof,” or “meow,” sound, as well as hear their reply as you play! You can literally call your pet and hear how they're doing!

 

Not only does Pebby live stream video of your pet playing, you can snap pictures and record videos at the same time. Share your favorite cute moments with your friends and family on social media via the media Gallery board included as part of your free app.

 

Our built-in powerful LED Headlights lets you navigate Pebby even in dark or dimly lit rooms so playtime never stops!

 

 

 

 

  

 

  

 

Designed to inspire curiosity, creativity, and invention through connected play and coding, Pebby is far more than just a robot. Powered by the latest Intel Edison computing module and supported by a huge developer forum, developers now have the ability to program and integrate their own algorithms into Pebby. 

The Pebby Team will provide an API and programming guidebooks upon request to anyone who wants to go about learning how to program and develop their very own interactive algorithms or even a new App for your phone. Bring your ideas to life with Pebby!

Risks and challenges

Pebby is based on existing technology, making the developmental risks low. Our experienced team has already developed a few working prototypes, which have been tested and perform extremely well, providing us with feasibility of the product. This gives us confidence that we can deliver Pebby in production. We have manufacturing, operations, and logistics set up and ready to go. The funding raised on Kickstarter will be used for production and manufacturing of this robotic pet sitter.
