During the last 10 years, urban population has detonated worldwide. With more people each day living in cities, dog population has also increased. Some experts are even speculating there will be more dogs than humans in some Asian cities in the next few years.
The number of dogs living in apartments is on the rise. They are an important part of our families, contribute to our happiness, reduce stress levels, lower blood pressure and increase our social interaction. Lots of scientific studies back it, dogs have a strong positive impact on people.
There are some dogs staying inside their home for extended periods of time without being able to go outside. Busy schedules, traffic, harsh weather conditions or just unexpected events may keep the owner from arriving home. There is now a fully automated smart solution available: INUBOX.
INUBOX is the first fully automated dog toilet designed to help your dog and you live in a cleaner environment. INUBOX is an innovative product designed for small and medium dogs to do their business and keep your home smelling good at all times.
The start-up, Newtons Box, dedicated itself to create an indoor solution to help your dog have an alternative to relieve its needs without leaving any messy situations for you to clean when returning home.
Their project, a smart dog toilet was launched in CES 2019 and then published in Kickstarter a few months afterwards. They founded the project in less than 5 hours. INUBOX is a technology station designed to provide excellence in dog-care.
The device captures, processes and contains waste in an automated cycle. Due to its variety in sensors, it detects your dog activity and knows if any waste is left behind. The platform is built with a hydrophobic surface which repels any solid or liquid. It processes everything through a litter box and then all is transferred to a biodegradable plastic bag. The bag opens and closes with each use for odor retention. It just takes a push of a button for the station to automatically seal and cut the bag for disposal.
INUBOX uses a positive reinforcement system; each time your dog uses it, a treat is be released so he dog will understand he’s doing a good job and -eventually- get trained to only use the station, not your floor. An additional fragrance dispenser activates after each use, so your home is always fresh.
The station and consumable levels can be monitored remotely via an app. You can even control (activate/deactivate) from your smartphone.
INUBOX is expected to start shipping by December 2019, but you can get a sweet discount (up to 45% off) by backing their project in Kickstarter.
