Smart Interactive Dog Toy: WickedBone

Dog owners looking for a smart and interactive way to entertain their dogs may be interested in a new high-tech toy called the WickedBone, which has this week launched by Kickstarter to raise the required funds to take the project into production. Designed and developed by a team based in Australia the WickedBone is now available to back with earlybird pledges available from $59, £42 or AU$76. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about its features functionality and smartphone companion application which is supported by both Android and iOS devices.

Specifically designed to attract your dog’s attention without the need for manual operation the WickedBone interact with your dog using responsive triggers such as touch, lights and sounds. “Dogs love bones, but conventional bones are overrated. They quickly evaporate in a dog’s mouth, and they often cause gastric problems and one big mess, without offering any interaction or playing opportunities. Now meet Wickedbone, a bone-shaped interactive gaming device that performs like a truly smart, fun and excitingly wicked companion of your dog.”
