Here’s your snack buddy or how to make your pet a technology pet

We do love our pets. If it is a dog, we take it for a walk, let it run in the park unleashed; if it is a cat, we let it take a nap on our lap. What do you do if you have to go on some trip? Leave the poor soul alone without its treats and your soft murmur? Well, someone has got the solution.

A company in Minnesota has created a device  which enables you to communicate with your pet from any place around the world and give him or her a treat. It it called PetChatz and works like Skype: you can have a video call and make the machine dispense some snacks.  Could it be any better? Your pet will not suffer mood swings because you will be always by her side, or rather mounted on the wall.

The device has to be mounted somewhere close to an electrical source and then connected to a Wi-Fi. When the owner wants to “chat” with her pet, she logs into PetChatz.com on the computer or via a phone app. The device rings so that the pet knows that the owner is calling, and, ideally, should run to the have a video call. Recorded videos can also be shared.

The device is available at a price of $349, and which is likely to bring joy to your pet. To be more precise, it is described as a “joyful sensory experience”.

Personally, I would not use such a device. Instead, I would leave my pet with some family member or a good friend. Technology cannot replace a person, don’t you think?
