Pebby features an interchangeable/multidesign inner casing, built-in LED lights for
“night vision” mode and LED glow rims. It also houses built-in speakers and a laser toy
that is safe for humans and pets, according to the company.
Pebby also includes an array of entertainment functions accessible via the Pebby app.
Users can set Pebby on auto play mode while they watch their pets play, or can take
charge remotely and indulge in playtime with their pet. With the app, users can change
LED colors and customize advanced settings like maximum speed and linear/angular
acceleration. Users receive alerts on their smartphones whenever their pet starts playing
with Pebby, or upon detection of barking sounds.
“Pebby is designed to receive software updates, a free service to all Pebby owners,
that will improve the overall experience,” said Hansen Goh, co-founder and CEO of the
Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company. “We will be upgrading Pebby wirelessly to introduce
new features such as auto-navigating to the wireless charging kennel as well as auto play
behaviors like Auto-Follow and Auto-Repel.”
San Francisco-based Petcube demonstrated its pet detection technology, which uses
artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to recognize pets, trigger recording of
pet selfie videos and initiate two-way video calls. The feature update will be rolled out
to compatible Petcube Play and Petcube Bites devices on the latest firmware this spring.
With the upgrade, pets can phone their owners and send selfie videos; the clips
can be made instantly shareable. Through machine learning, Petcube devices will
be able to differentiate between pets versus humans, according to company officials.
Pets can initiate two-way livestream chats whenever they’re captured in front of the
wide-angle camera. When a pet comes into view, the Petcube camera triggers the video
recording. The clip is then pushed
over the air as an app notification
to the device owner. Owners will
be able to preview the selfie clip
and accept the video call request
from their pet. They can choose
to save the clip to their phone’s
camera roll, or view it later via the
Petcube App timeline.
The pet selfies will be temporarily auto-saved to the cloud, or
saved up to three to 30 days based
on an optional Petcube Care plan.
Petcube device users can also instantly share clips via the Petcube
App feed and to their preferred social networks.
This past year, Petcube integrated Facebook live and updated Petcube devices to be
compatible with Amazon Alexa and Amazon Dash Replenishment Service. The company plans to roll out advancements in pet behavioral diagnostics later this year, helping
pet owners take proactive actions when it comes to their pet’s health and wellness,

easily with any popular mobile phone and is one of the smallest
collar communication devices on the market, according to company
officials. It also features a four-month battery life, making it ideal for
pets and pet owners by removing the need to charge it weekly like

owners by setting critical reminders like veterinary appointments,
