The Felik Pet Companion is what happens when three guys in Seattle who love pets decide to find a way to keep your kitty or puppy occupied when you're off doing hooman things. Felik is a little mouse-shaped bot that uses a camera and artificial intelligence to track your pets, learn from their movem ents, and react to how they hunt so it can simulate real prey. Cool! Felik connects to the WiFI in your house and has an app where you can schedule play throughout the day so when you're away, this little mousebot can play.
What could happen if something goes wrong?
We love this little robot companion for your furry family member. We do. These three guys in Seattle seem to try and take privacy and security seriously and have some cool features built in to Felik, like the ability to toggle WiFi on and off with a physical button, a indicator light when the camera is streaming, and even and on-device firewall. And it's awesome users can request an explanation about any decisions taken as a results of the artificial intelligence Felix uses by contacting the company. Good work three guys in Seattle!
