you’ve heard of a man’s best friend but how about a dog‘s? not only is the wickedbone the world’s first fully interactive smart toy but it promises to be the emotional support your furry friend might need when your not available. the bone-shaped interactive toy boasts app control, two-way communication allowing it to react to the different actions and needs of your dog.

 

 

lasting forty minutes in drive mode, 4 hours in interactive mode and 3 months in sleep mode, on only 1 hours worth of charge, the wickedbone markets itself as the smart antidote for dog anxiety. wickedbone contains what it calls an ’emotional system’ allowing the smart device to react to your dogs emotions. it ranges in modes from bored, mad and sleep to normal, content and going crazy. 

 

 

wickedbone is the answer to the temporary enjoyment of edible bones, giving pet-owners everywhere the chance to sit back and let the dog throw a bone to itself. the toy works using a two-wheel system and sensors to run away from your dog, encouraging a little game of chase. and when you want to get involved? drive mode allows you to control its movement.

 

 

the smart toy has been created by cheerable technology co., ltd., a company that specializes in the prototypes and manufacturing of pet related smart electronic gadgets. to support the development of the device see its kickstarter campaign here.
