Playdate provides a pet toy that lets you remotely watch over your pets like dogs or cats. The ball-shaped toy has a video camera, a mic, and a speaker inside it. Pet owners can monitor and interact with their pets from their smartphones. Unlike conventional monitoring cameras, Playdate can capture the pets in the full face as it is a toy for them. In addition, Playdate is developing a new service to have vets monitor the pets’ behavior to detect indications of various diseases.
