iPet Companion Lets You Play With your Pet Over the Internet

I’m a private investigator, so half of the time, I have to leave my family at home while I travel across the state. We communicate through facebook, and cellphones, but talking to a cat over a facebook webcam is just plain weird. If you are like me, then you want to make sure that you have a way to communicate with your family back home. Facebook and Cellphones are okay to talk to your loved ones, but cat’s and pets need a different kind of attention.

iPet Companion has two robotic toys that can swing a ball or even move other toys. It has a webcam so you can see your pet’s reaction and it has a wireless control box that lets you link your webcam to your home network. To play with your pet, all you need is to log into your iPet Companion account, and start throwing the ball around.

If I were you, I would only use this for a small pet or a cat, a dog like the size of my bulldog would instantly tear the whole thing to pieces. The whole system comes in ready to play for a little under $900, then you have to pay $5 a month to access the website. And THATS the catch, but you know what they say, you can’t put price on love can you? I can… is not like my dog or cat would give a care anyway.
