Kickstarter’s Wickedbone Is a Smart & Interactive Dog Toy for B
One of the most important thing you can do as a dog owner is making sure your precious pooch gets enough exercise– both mental and physical! But, when you spend long hours at work, it’s not always manageable, and sometimes your doggo doesn’t get the playtime they deserve. The creators of first bone-shaped, smart, interactive dog toy hope to change that for good.
Wickedbone is an interactive toy like no other, and it’s all because of its trademark “emotional system.” In its interactive mode, the smart bone toy “recognizes” your pooch’s emotions by reading their movement and actions, and adjusts its play modes accordingly. For example, if your pet seems indifferent (no playful paws grabbing the toy), Wickedbone will start taunting them and engaging them. The toy is great at a game of chase, too, and knows how to provoke the best reactions from your pupper: and all that based on their touch.
When used in drive mode, the Wickedbone is controlled through a smartphone app, by using a virtual joystick. The bone toy pairs with your device via Bluetooth, and it’s fun to use- it’s almost like a mini-game for pawrent as well as their dog. You can take the smart toy with you to the park or adventures in nature, as it has different drive modes for indoors and outdoors, which enable you to change types of surface and range for best results.
The sleek, futuristic design of this dog toy beautifully complements its tech-advanced features. Wickedbone is made FDA class polycarbonate, a high-quality material that is safe for both pets and humans. The bone ends act as the toy’s tires and are replaceable and customizable: you can get them in various colors and switch them if your fur baby chews them off or if you’re just in a mood for a change.
If you’re looking for a fun new toy to surprise your doggo with, check out Wickedbone Kickstarter– you can get it for 40% less than its retail price, and they start at $57!
