GOMI: The Interactive Smart Ball for Your Pets

Did you know that up to 40% of dogs experience anxiety during their lives, almost exclusively from being left alone? That means that every morning that you leave your furry friend at home, they could be suffering until you get back.

Leaving your dog home alone without any interaction or stimulation can lead to a variety of mental, physical and behaviour issues.

Nearly half of all house pets are obese, as they simply lack the regular exercise required to stay fit.

The perfect way to keep your pet mentally and physically active, even when you aren’t home!

  • Our expertly-designed smart ball allows your pet to play all day long through a variety of preprogrammed activities that stimulate their mind and get them moving!
  • Featuring AutoStart and AutoStop functions, GOMI continuously moves in irregular patterns through an evolving algorithm. This keeps your pet engaged and their mind stimulated, keeping them physically fit and lessening the possibility of anxiety or depression.
  • The GOMI comes programmed with 12 different interactions offer something new, exciting and intriguing for your pet no matter how long they play!
  • When you come back home, the GOMI app will let you know how the pet played with Gomi while you were away. The GOMI app will help you know what your pet is doing while you are away and help you manage it healthier. 

GOMI makes your pet exercise even when you are busy or not home, by stimulating his curiosity through autonomous movements. 

We are the first. The original. The only interactive smart pet toy on the market today! These smart interactions make sure your pet never gets bored and play for a long time, 

  • When the dog bites the GOMI, GOMI vibrates.
  • When the dog grab or drop GOMI, it rolls away and escapes by itself.

The GOMI uses FDA-Certified Polycarbonate coating that is strong enough to withstand even the hardest bites from your pet.

The Sustainable Soy Ink ensures that your dog or cat is free from any harmful substances, so they can enjoy the smart ball as much as they want!

The antibacterial nature of the GOMI means that it can go wherever your pet takes it! From the yard to the living room and anywhere in between, you don’t need to worry about germs or bacteria.

The GOMI is designed to be 100% waterproof and easy-to-clean, so you can freshen it up for your pup or kitty in no time!

Once the GOMI gets dirty, simply run it under hot water and it will be clean and ready to roll. 

Our innovative wireless charger gives the GOMI the power it needs for hours of play! Once your pet is done, simply place the ball back on the charger (or train your furry friend to do so!) and it will be quickly ready for more fun in no time.

  • Full charging Time: Maximum 4 hours 
  • Activity time: Maximum 16 cycles 
  • 1 Cycle is made of 30mins = 5mins Play mode + 25mins Sleep mode 
  • Can move continuously for maximum 80 mins.

Even if the pet touch the GOMI during Sleep mode, the toy will move for 1 minute. This interaction allows your pet to feel like a living animal and play for a long time. If the GOMI moves without sleep mode, the dog will soon get tired. GOMI is Smart!!! 

With no charging ports anywhere on the device, your pet remains 100% safe during play.  

Want to make sure your pet gets their needed activity, even while you’re away? 

  • Just log in to the GOMI App and you receive immediate control of the ball’s movements! 
  • Get the GOMI rolling to catch the eye of your pet, encouraging play to keep them moving.

Want to track your pet’s play habits and activity throughout the day?

  • Stay Connected Through Bluetooth. 
  • GOMI includes a full mobile app for your smartphone, allowing you to receive real-time data about your pet’s interactions with it. 

Nothing is more frustrating for a pet or their owner than losing a toy!

The GOMI app makes it easier than ever to find the ball, as well as control its movement. Plus, the LED lights and movement of the ball let you find it under couches, under beds and anywhere else your pets take it!

We designed GOMI to easily roll around, giving your dogs and cats endless hours of entertainment. From the moment they see the ball rolling, they will instantly be mesmerized at it actives their predatory senses.

With embedded dimples that cause irregular movement, as well as the built-in algorithm that keeps your pets guessing, the GOMI is unlike any pet toy they have ever seen!

It rolls easily and quietly on hard floors, carpets and even lawns, letting your furry friends enjoy play time without disturbing you.

Add a wide range of accessories to make the GOMI exclusive to your pet!

With eye-catching feathers, cute animal bands and colorful covers, you can create a personalized GOMI that your dog or cat will enjoy.

PLUS, we include some accessories such as Skin Bands and a randomly chosen feather to get you started on customizing your ball for your beloved pet!

By creating a Kickstarter campaign, we want to get the GOMI to the market faster, while listening to what YOU have to say about it!

We chose to raise funds for the GOMI through Kickstarter and crowdfunding for many reasons. One of those is because the manufacturing and production is expensive and we need your help!

Another one is because crowdfunding allows us to hear feedback and ideas DIRECTLY FROM YOU, the customer, which we can use as reference in the final part of the design process.

A third reason is because we are introducing a brand new product into the market. We want to educate consumers and connect with early adopters and people who are interested in what we are creating. In order to afford to place a large-scale order with our manufacturer, we need YOUR help. Placing a larger order means we are able to get the cost per unit down lower, which allows us to pass that savings on to you.

Our trusted manufacturing partners need a minimum financial commitment from us to get started on a larger manufacturing run. This is why we have set our funding goal to $5000. By hitting this funding goal, we are able to put in a larger order to our manufacturing partners enabling us to serve customer demand. Crowdfunding allows us to design without compromise and run a company we are proud to work for. We owe our existence to our backers, who help us design the most thoughtful carry solutions on the planet. We imagine a world where for-profit companies treat their employees, partners, customers, and communities as peers, and where quality of output is not hindered by the need to squeeze out maximum profit. Your support helps us to realize that goal. Thank you. •We truly believe in Kickstarter as a platform, where like-minded entrepreneurs and early adopters bring together innovative, disruptive, and sophisticated projects to life. We already support a dozen projects from other people on Kickstarter with our own money - we put our money where our mouth is.

Our Kickstarter campaign aims to bring GOMI to pets around the world, faster!

Q1. Is GOMI hard enough for my pet? 

A1. GOMI is SAFE & DURABLE. Even for high-power biters.

Over the past three years, we focused on building the most durable and BITE-safe GOMI. After several safety tests and field tests with real customers in Korea (with our first generation of GOMI), we are very confident with what we have built. That’s why we are here! We dare your furry friends to break it ;)

Q2.  Is there any guarantee that the GOMI will be delivered in July?

A2.  GOMI will be delivered in July. And that's for sure. 

We are already in the process of developing the mold for the mass production and are preparing for the next step. 

Besides We plan to regularly update the mass production process for Backer during GOMI funding.

Risks and challenges

With our years of experience in the industry, we are very confident with our process and production schedule for GOMI. However, we also know that hidden obstacles and challenges often occur. Because of that, we’ve made sure to account for some amount of craziness or unforeseen problems that may occur in our schedule. If something does go wrong, we promise to keep our backers updated and informed about any issues and about the way in which we are solving them.
