As technology continues to insinuate itself into our lives at an ever increasing pace, activities that have remained more or less the same for millennia are now seeing radical makeovers. Take playing with pets, for example. For thousands of years, if not more, that meant real, physical interaction – like throwing a ball or dangling a string. Now products like Kittyo make that all seem so passé. This plaything for cats (and their owners) lets you have fun with your pets even when you're away. The clever unit incorporates a laser toy, camera, speaker and treat dispenser so pet owners can engage with, watch, talk to and feed their cats, all through a mobile device... and all from the comfort of wherever. Like all great new ideas these days, Kittyo is looking for funding via a soon-to-be-launched Kickstarter. Count us in.
