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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
About this project
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.

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!

you can program your own 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.
