Now you can interact with your pet from anywhere with Pawbo+

If you think that technology is just for humans then think again.  A new technology which lets you interact with your pets from afar was recently announced at the next@acer press event at IFA in Germany.  Acer announces the Pawbo+ together with a range of new devices and solutions for families, students and professionals.

Considering busy people, office workers and other pet owners, a group of people decides to invent Pawbo in 2014.  This technology strives to harness the power of the Internet of Things (IoT) to enhance how owners interact with and care for their lovable pets.

Acer and Pawbo

Acer introduces new enhancements to Pawbo since they had recently acquired the product.  Now through Pawbo+, the company introduces its BeingWare to the device.  The device is actually an interactive wireless pet camera with the ability to dispense treat for your pets and also play with them using laser pointers.

The company extends the usability of Pawbo+ through Acer's BeingWare™ initiative.  Through this it creates an integrated hardware, software, and service solution, and exemplifies the Acer Group’s mission to break barriers between people and technology.

No More Lonely Pets

Pawbo+ is designed for pet owners that have to leave their cats or small dogs at home alone throughout the day. Its internet-enabled wide-angle camera (130-degrees) and speaker/microphone combo let users check in on their pets visually and talk to them to provide comfort from afar. Such daily interactions can help to reduce pet anxiety caused by prolonged durations of being alone. With privacy in mind, the camera is designed to point slightly downward so that it only captures what pets are doing, while all communication is encrypted for added peace of mind.

A Fun and Interactive Experience

Using an iOS or Android device to view one’s pet remotely is just the first step. Pawbo+ also includes a collection of unique features that make viewing sessions playful and fun. Users can log in and serve up a tasty treat stored in Pawbo+’s built-in storage tray. Multiple ringtone notifications and treats help train pets to respond and encourage pets’ good behaviors. Pawbo+ has an integrated laser pointer that can be activated remotely to give owners a fun way to interact with their pets and keep them active.

Smart Design and Sharing 

Designed for the modern lifestyle, Pawbo+ features an organic oval shape profile that sits stylishly in any corner of the home. Up to 8 concurrent users can log in to view Pawbo+ live streams, and the device can also be integrated with Dropbox and Google Drive so users can save their precious videos on the cloud easily. The Pawbo+ app also allows seamless photo sharing on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The More the Merrier 

Pet owners can expand the capabilities of Pawbo+  with 4 soon-to-be available accessories, including Pawbo Flash (artificial lighting for camera), Pawbo Munch (additional treat dispenser), Pawbo Catch (cat teaser), and Pawbo Punch (whac-a-mole game).
