A new kind of companion for busy pet parents who worry about leaving their pets at home alone over long periods of time, VARRAM has launched the VARRAM Pet Fitness Robot, an industry-leading, artificial intelligence-powered, five-sense-stimulating pet companion.
The company’s innovative robot was designed to appeal to pets, but it is not your average pet toy.
The pet fitness robot’s advanced technology allows pet owners to remotely track and monitor their pet’s activity, decide when their pets are active, set the duration of activity, and control the number of treats their pet receives all from the VARRAM phone app.
“We are animal lovers above all else,” Bee-Oh Kim, global marketing deputy general manager of VARRAM said. “To develop our product, our team sought out advice from animal behavior specialists during the design process. Although playing with the pet fitness robot may seem like a lighthearted activity, it can make a world of difference for a pet’s overall well-being. We are driven by improving the quality of life of humans and pets through robot technology.”
Kim added that throughout the course of a 10-hour day, the company’s robot can promote activity to distract a pet from the stress associated with separation anxiety and encourage exercise to combat or prevent depression, lethargy, and obesity.
If you are worried about your pet ripping the toy apart, the VARRAM developers ensured the Pet Fitness Robot’s structural integrity through its rugged polycarbonate design and IPX4 water resistance. These features come together to create an incredibly durable robot design that can withstand a 630-pound weight test, the bites, scratches and gnaws of over 50 different large dogs, and liquid splashes from any direction.
In addition the toy comes with a protective case just in case you are afraid of your dog destroying the robot.
Rocky the Traveller got to play around with the robot. Once he found out about the treats he looked forward to playing with it. It was definitely a way to keep him from getting bored an to entertain him. With the app, I was able to schedule treat tossing, put on a demo mode that showed the robot dancing.
