About

Reports suggest that up to 30% of companion dogs experience some degree of separation anxiety during their lives. This is an important condition in our companion animals, and it should not be dismissed as simply a result of inadequate training or socialization.

Leaving your pet home alone for extended periods of time dramatically increases their chances of experiencing depression.

If pets have no physical stimulation while at home, they can quickly become obese, leading to heart problems and other physical ailments. 

Featuring AutoStart and AutoStop functions, Gomiball continuously moves in irregular patterns through an evolving algorithm. This keeps your pet engaged and their mind stimulated, lessening the probability of depression.

Unlike basic toys, GomiBall is able of 12 different interractions. The smart interractions of GomiBall help your pet to play for a long time without even growing bored.

Durability 

No matter how strong your pet is, the GomiBall can keep up! Made from rugged polycarbonate plastic that is approved by the FDA for pet play, as well as vegetable inks, the toy is both durable and anti-bacterial to keep your pet safe.

  • When dogs bite, chew, and suck, the smallest hole might turn into cracks.
  • That’s why we adopted a wireless charging method for safe play.
  • Your dog can chew and suck with all his heart: The ball hygienic play makes it easy to wash with the running water 
  • Besides, the saliva-proofness ability of the ball allows your pet to play safely.
  • The app helps you locate GomiBall easily after your pet played with it and put it somewhere.
  • You can use the app functions to control the GomiBall actions to see and hear the LED lights and hear its the movements.
  • GomiBall is a ball-shaped robot.
         - We designed it in the shape of a ball because many pets like to play with it.
         - If your pet likes playing with balls, the self-moving GomiBall will be his new favorite game. 
  • Round-shaped dimples with different sizes, not just balls, have two advantages:
         - First, when a pet chases after the GomiBall, dimples of various sizes cause irregular movement. That's why catching it gives your pet more challenge and more exercise.
         - Secondly, dimples of various sizes help the ball roll better on hard floors, carpets and swimming pools.
  • Bring more fun to your pet with a variety of accessories he loves.
  • Pets love using accessories such as socks and feathers.
  • If we reach beyond our $200K goal, we will give you an additional GomiSkin.
  • There are currently NO OTHER PRODUCTS LIKE GomiBall ON THE MARKET. We have no direct competitors!
  • If you support GomiBall, even if you are busy or absent, your dog can play alone. And you do not have to be sorry anymore.
  • Featuring autostart and autostop functions, GomiBall continuously moves in irregular patterns through an evolving algorithm. This keeps your pet engaged and their mind stimulated, lessening the probability of depression.
  • The closest competitors to GomiBall right now is the App-enabled robot Ball created by Sphero. Ball created by Sphero can only be controlled through the App, so it will not work while you are away.

We chose to go with Kickstarter and crowdfunding for many reasons. One of those is because manufacturing and production is expensive and we need the 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

By doing a Kickstarter campaign, we will be able to bring the GomiBall to market! 

Risks and challenges

With our years of experience in the industry, we are very confident with our process and production schedule for GomiBall. 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.
