For $100 you could have an internet-connected litterbox
We have a few different ways to make sure our cats are eating, but what about tracking the natural consequence of all that kibble? That’s what Tailio is for: it’s a smart scale that sits under the litter box and monitors the, ahem, “elimination behaviors” of your favorite feline as well as its tare weight. Seriously. The WiFi-gizmo’s creators say that this is to make keeping an eye on your cat’s health easier, and act as an early detection system for any possible ailments. They also claim that it’s the first product of its kind. Naturally, all of the collected data is accessible via a mobile app that can even send reminders for when the box needs cleaning — you know, in case you’ve gotten used to the telltale aroma after years of cat ownership. Have at least $100 to burn? Hit the project’s Kickstarter page to help make any dreams of cat-poo analytics on your mobile device a reality.
