FluentPet Connect: The Next Generation of Pet Text Messages @ CES 2022



FluentPet Connect pet communicationIf you have a pet, you know that it can be difficult to understand what they want. Their vocal capabilities are limited and tend to just be whines and similar-sounding noises. But, as all pet owners know, these animals are still very smart. They understand what we are saying and are aware of different wants and needs. So, why can’t we find a reliable way of communicating with our pets? FluentPet has a solution to this problem using small buttons and recorded voices.

What is FluentPet?

It’s been a long journey, but we’re finally here. FluentPet Connect is the next generation of pet communications, and it represents a huge leap forward in our quest to connect with animals in a deeper way. With FluentPet Connect, you can capture every push of a button and send high-fidelity audio directly to your pet’s Base HexTile speaker. This allows you to customize your interactions with them however you like!

The compact design also means you can fit more buttons into a smaller space, and the sturdy construction discourages biting, as opposed to the foam used to construct the previous version. There are six installable sound buttons to choose from and it is your choice of what you would like each button to do. The possibilities do not end there.

How does this work?

The FluentPet Connect app uses a technology called Augmented Audio to send your voice commands directly to the Base HexTile. This allows you to keep your pet’s attention focused on you while you’re interacting with them, and it also means that you can use any words or sounds you like! There are six buttons provided per tile, and the newer design adds threading to the buttons to decrease the chance of them being removed by your pet so easily.

Wi-Fi capability has been added as well, and there are expansion devices that can be purchased in bundles. The expansion tiles would connect to the Base HexTile via Bluetooth, to avoid having endless numbers of devices connected to your home Wi-Fi connection. This is a simple and smart solution to be able to add more tiles, which would add any number of customizable buttons at your pet’s disposal.

Summary

The original FluentPet is available now with starter kits priced at $29.95. The FluentPet Connect and Expansion HexTiles are aiming for a release date between Spring and Summer of this year. The Base HexTile is available for purchase on their website for $79.95 and the Expansion Tiles will retail for $49.95. There is also a pack of 3 Expansion HexTiles available for $119.95.

The FluentPet Connect app is a free download on the App Store and Google Play, and it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android devices. As of right now, pre-orders are available through their website. To learn more about the original FluentPet, the FluentPet Connect, or to pre-order one for yourself, head over to the company’s website.

TTcare: App service that keeps pets healthy and happy @ CES 2022



TTcare healthy pet techOf course, we all want to know if our pets are happy and healthy, but how can we be sure that we are doing enough?

Every year we get a front-row seat to the latest and greatest pet care items. And many times, what we see are merely reinventions or simple improvements upon tech and gadgets that already exist. But this year we were able to witness a brand new use of technology that just may end up being a game-changer when it comes to the health of our beloved pets.

What is TTcare?

Created by AI FOR PET, TTcarehas developed an AI technology-based app service that allows anyone to quickly and easily check in on the health of their pets. TTcare is the first mobile application in the world that can help to determine whether a disease may exist right at home without the need for any expensive or special equipment. Their business model and technology are currently patent pending and this unique app is the first product of this kind to be officially approved by the Korean government for an “Artificial Intelligence-based medical device software for animals” rather than as a general pet service.

How TTcare Works

How is this even possible, you ask? We had the exact same question. Basically, AI FOR PET has been able to build out a custom technology within their app that is able to detect certain diseases via analyzing pictures of the pets’ eyes or skin. This brand new usage of photo recognition technology is based on an image recognition algorithm that can detect specific abnormalities. Not only can this information help give pet owners a heads up to potential health concerns, but it can also be used to help veterinarians diagnose diseases at early stages, which is crucial for effective treatment.

TTcare is the first mobile application in the world to determine whether a disease exists by using something as simple as a photograph of the family pet. TTcare not only helps keep your furry friends healthy and happy, but it also makes checking on their health so much easier than ever before! And although this technology, at first glance, appears to be too amazing to be true. It simply joins a much longer list in the preventive healthcare arena, such as glucose, oxygen level, and even sleep monitoring. So to them, it was a natural next step to take this type of health detection to the next level by offering convenient and simple in-home monitoring of the health of our furry companions.

Benefits of TTcare

There are many benefits to using TTcare. It provides for easy and simple checkups that can be done from anywhere in the world! These checkups can be performed by anyone, regardless of whether they have a veterinary background or not. It can also prevent diseases from spreading and allows for early diagnosis and treatment.

How You Can Use TTcare

The TTcare app is available for free download on the App Store and Google Play and is very easy to use. Once you have downloaded the app, you can create an account and start taking pictures, with step-by-step instructions and guidance, of your pet’s eyes and skin. TTcare will automatically analyze the pictures and provide you with information on whether your pet has any potential diseases. You can then take this information to seek your veterinarian for further diagnosis and treatment.

Summary

The TTcare app is available now in the mobile app stores. To learn more about the platform and download the app, head over to the company’s website.

Felaqua Connect: The smart water bowl for your cat @ CES 2022



Felaqua Connect by Sure PetcareIs your cat drinking enough water? Many cats don’t and it can be a sign of serious issues. Catching the problem early is important, but can be a challenge to do unless you watch your cat every minute of the day. Felaqua Connect by Sure Petcare is the smart water bowl that encourages your cat to drink, designed with leading veterinary behaviorists. The device connects with your cat’s microchip, providing insights into drinking behavior that may otherwise be missed.

What is Sure Petcare?

Sure Petcare is the company behind Felaqua Connect. They are a pet technology company that creates products to make life easier for both pets and their owners. Their aim is to use technology to help us better understand our pets, and in doing so, improve their quality of life.

The company has a wide range of products to help keep your pet healthy, including a connected feeder which we were introduced to at CES 2020. They also offer pet doors, so your animals can come and go at will, and a tracking collar so you know where they are.

What is Felaqua Connect?

Felaqua Connect is the bowl that your cat would choose to drink from – its wide, shallow bowl presents water in a way that is more visible and appealing to your cat. Used with the Sure Petcare App, the bowl tells you how often, when and how much your cat drinks. Felaqua Connect is the perfect way to ensure that your cat is getting enough water, especially if you’re not always around to watch them drink.

The Felaqua Connect bowl was designed in collaboration with leading veterinary behaviorists. It’s important to know how much and how often your cat drinks, as dehydration can lead to health problems for cats. Felaqua Connect makes it easy to keep track of your cat’s water intake and could help you avoid any health issues down the line.

How does Felaqua Connect work?

Felaqua Connect works by connecting with your cat’s microchip. This allows the product to keep track of how much and when your cat drinks, as well as any changes in drinking behavior. Felaqua Connect will even send you a notification if your cat hasn’t had a drink for a certain amount of time.

Felaqua Connect attaches to your cat’s microchip and monitors movement around the bowl. When your cat approaches the bowl, they will trigger an ultrasonic sound that is only audible to them. This encourages them to drink, as they will associate the sound with getting a drink of water. It also has an LED light that can be turned on or off depending on your preference.

Summary

The Felaqua Connect is available right now. Prices start at $115 for just the bowl but can also be purchased with the Internet Hub for $199. To learn more about the product, explore the other products that are available, or purchase one for yourself, you can head over to the company’s website or Amazon.

Invoxia Smart Dog Collar: Get smarter about your dog’s health @ CES 2022



Invoxia Smart Dog CollarDo you worry about your dog’s health? You should be because heart conditions in dogs are more common than you think. However, with the Invoxia Smart Dog Collar, you can monitor your dog’s heart and respiratory rate with medical accuracy. This collar also tracks your dog’s activity levels and daily routine, so you can share this data with your veterinarian. By establishing a diagnostic baseline, you can keep tabs on your dog’s health and prevent any serious problems from developing.

Who is Invoxia?

Invoxia is a French company that specializes in the development of innovative telephony solutions. In addition to their Smart Dog Collar, they also make a large collection of other GPS-enabled products for business and industrial purposes. With products like these, it’s no wonder that Invoxia has been awarded seven CES Innovation Awards!

What is the Smart Dog Collar?

The Smart Dog Collar is a device that monitors your dog’s heart and respiratory rate, tracks their activity levels and daily routine, and sends all this data to the cloud. Once this data is available, it can be used to track activity and behavioral changes, and even location, all from a convenient mobile app. You can even share the data with your veterinarian.

Combining GPS tracking with biometric data, the collar is able to monitor your dog wherever they are. On a normal day, it tracks movement, behavior, heart conditions, and even pulse. This can give you a better idea of what is going on with your dog, and whether or not something has changed in their daily routine. Big changes in things like sleep patterns or respiratory rate can indicate that something bigger is going on, giving you an early warning sign.

Not only is the collar good for heath reporting, but it’s also good for general safety, as well. On an unusual day, let’s say your dog gets out of the yard and disappears. The active tracking GPS built into the collar will give you the ability to find where they have gone and hopefully get them back.

Who is the Smart Dog Collar for?

The Smart Dog Collar is for anyone who loves their dog and wants to keep them healthy. This collar is perfect for dogs who are at risk or already suffer from heart conditions, as it provides accurate medical information that can help with diagnosis and treatment. The collar is also a great way to keep tabs on your dog’s health and prevent any serious problems from developing.

Petpuls is a wearable, using AI to give your dog a voice @ CES 2021



Petpuls dog emotional analysisWearable health tech has become a normal part of our lives. Many people wear a smartwatch or fitness tracker on their wrists that tracks your activity. Some people wear more specialized devices, like DFree, to track more specific medical issues. But, this is catering specifically to humans – but we love our pets almost as much as we love people. Petpuls recognizes this, and is bringing the benefits of wearable devices to your dogs.

Petpuls is a specialized collar that gives your dog a voice. Essentially, the idea is that your dog is speaking to you. Anyone who has had dogs knows that they can express their feelings and physical states with their barking. Different tones are used in different scenarios and to express different emotions. However, it can be difficult for humans to detect those differences. For those who can differentiate, it can still be difficult to figure out what they want or need.

This is where Petpuls comes in. Using a microphone, the collar has the ability to listen to your pet’s voice. Using artificial intelligence, the system is able to take that voice and translate it into simple English. Now, it’s not going to give you the ability to hold conversations with your dog, but it does give you the ability to determine several emotional states that your dog might be in: happy, sad, anxious, relaxed, and angry. This can give you the ability to respond to help relieve negative states or help maintain positive states.

Because the system is powered by AI, it means that the more devices that are in the wild, and the more of them in active use, the better the detection will get. In fact, with time, the nuances between these states might be able to be broken out into more detailed categories.

The Petpuls is available now for $99 for the small size and $108 for the large size. To learn more or make a purchase, head over to the Petpuls website.

Wayzn turns your sliding door into an automatic pet door @ CES 2021



Wayzn automatic pet doorPets can require a lot of attention. In particular, they need to go outside to do their business fairly regularly. This can pose a challenge when you’re working, whether you’re working from home or going into an office. They may also need to go while you’re gone to the store, or out with friends. Wouldn’t it be great if they could let themselves out? That’s the goal of Wayzn.

Now, there have been options for pet doors for years. The most common is the traditional flap. They’re fairly inexpensive to purchase and uncomplicated to use. However, they require you, or more likely a contractor, to cut a hole in your exterior door. Plus, if you don’t lock the flap or put a board in front of it, you’re inviting wildlife into your home. A cool place with food left out is a raccoon’s dream scenario, and the flap would make that possible. There are also sliding door inserts, and, while they’re easy to install, they have the same issues as a regular flap, plus they limit the door’s usage.

With Wayzn, you get all of the benefits with none of the drawbacks. The system sits on the bottom part of the track of an existing sliding door. As long as the door is long enough and the fixed pane is outside, you’re likely good to go. Installation can be done by you with little trouble. Once installed, you can set the door to open on its own, by an app, or by voice control.

Wayzn devices are in limited production but are available to purchase now. They run only $399, which is less than the installation of a flap. To learn more about the Wayzn door opener or to take the survey to make sure it will work with your door and to purchase, head over to their website.
