A new contraption allows pet parents to keep an eye on their pets while they’re away from home, communicate with them remotely, and dispense treats with the touch of a button.
The Furbo is a combination HD camera, two-way audio and treat dispenser. Owners can use the 120-degree 720p camera, equipped with zoom and night vision, to keep watch of their pets.
