If you want your cat to walk several feet a day, get up from the couch and regain its strength in no time at all, check out this solution from Korea.
It’s about expansion B612 Cat Planet, from Little Cat Company, a ferris wheel I saw at MWC 21 that allows an LED light to be projected into a spinning wheel for the cat to relentlessly chase it.
I explain the idea in detail in this video:
As you can see, their work is very interesting. From the phone we tell him where the LED light should appear. If we set it too high, the cat will have to walk more to reach it, and if we set it too low, it’s just a walk. The respective light color can also change from the mobile phone and reports on the distance covered are generated at any time.
In the app we can record the name of the animal, the date of birth and the BCS (Body Condition Score) and connect it to the bike that we install at home via Bluetooth. The wheel width is 300 mm, so there is no risk of the lever falling during exercise. The total wheel diameter is 1.23 meters and the height of the device including the foot is 1.3 meters.
Over the material, they use high quality nylon. There are three layers, all of which contain materials that ensure that they will not harm the health of the cat or human. They also took care of the noise and minimized it so it would not be a nuisance.
They told me on the podium that they have not yet entered Europe but are about to do so. Right now they are being sold for $ 1,800 in several countries. So if you are interested, the best thing to do is to save space in the house and leave it.
