Your pet is one tap away

Hey Kickstarter!

With our campaign coming to an end a whole bunch of good news is coming your way. Thanks to your support we crossed the $200K stretch goal and unlocked the Autoplay mode. Fun fact: Petcube became the most successful crowdfunded pet product in history and our backers get all the credit for that.

Today we’d like to tell you a bit more about some cool features of the Petcube mobile application.

Petcube app lets you share a gadget with 3 different categories: family, friends and general public. It is always up to you who and when gets access to watch, talk and play with your pet through a smartphone.

The browsing screen lets you choose from different Petcubes when you want to communicate with a specific cat or a dog. There are 2 groups: Petcubes that were personally shared with you and Petcubes that are available for general public.

Petcube timeline combines information about you and your pets. Here you can share pictures and videos, post updates, join conversations and invite other users to interact with your cat or dog. You can always check activities of people you follow in the newsfeed. If your friend has a Petcube, tapping on her cover directly links you to her play screen.

Petcube application is going to be totally free to use. Also you can have it without actually owning a gadget and interact with public Petcubes. iOS version will be available for downloads this winter to give everybody a chance to meet parentless pets from shelters and rescues where the first Petcubes prototypes will be placed. Android app will be deployed before the first gadgets arrive to the backers in May 2014.

We do hope to reach the $250K goal and develop the Motion detection system. Please tweet and share your love for Petcube. Together we can get this feature!

Love,
Petcube Team

      Hey Jennifer,

      Many thanks for your support. Please drop us a line on info@petcube.net and we will come up with a fun way to notify your husband about his future present together.

      Hey pollution lake sound,

      It is work in progress. Many parts of the build are already functioning. We do hope to reach the $250K stretch goal to bring you the Motion detection feature!

      So very exited you folks are making this a reality- it will be just great for my husband and his English Bulldog- they both suffer separation anxiety when apart! He is getting this as a holiday present- other than directing him to the website, an you think of an fun way to let him know to expect this (the app would be great- but we are Android users)?

      App looks nice! Are these features working in an app right now or are these mockups?

      Personally hope we see the motion/sound detection features make it in. I want to know when my pup is being bad! ;)

      Fantastic update - the displays are beautiful. This is quickly becoming one of my most anticipated projects that I've ever backed - I just wish that May 2014 wasn't so far away!
