For a growing segment of people, pets, especially dogs, are an essential part of their family. Yet, for as much as we love these furry little “children,” we often don’t take very good care of them. Part of the problem is the lack of communication. Even if you use that cute little voice to speak for your dog, you have no real idea of exactly what he or she is actually trying to communicate. So, instead of taking the dog in for a checkup, you give it more food, causing even more health problems. There are automated dog feeders out there, but even these smart devices lack any sort of real-world, dog-specific data when doling out meals. The In the Dog automated dog feeder featured on Behance proposes an idea that breakthrough that communication barrier.
The In the Dog automated dog feeder features a tower where the dog’s food is stored. Food is dispensed from that tower. Sounds just like any other feeder, right? Where the In the Dog feeder is different is in the platform that surrounds the bowl. This platform has two sensory pads on it that the feeder uses to gather information regarding your pet. Much like a smart weight scale that you would use to measure your own weight and composition, this feeder measures your dog’s weight and composition. With that information, it can then customise the food output for your dog. Doing so would help to ensure better nutrition and thus better health.
The feeder has a sleek design that would make it a welcome addition to your home. The triangular design also makes it more versatile in where you can place it, allowing you to slip it into a corner out of the way. The feeder also connects to an app, so you can better track your pet’s health and also share it with your veterinarian. Your dog is definitely your best friend, and would do anything to keep you safe. Why not return the favour with the In the Dog automated dog feeder?
