Although this invention will not save you from taking your pet for a daily walk, it will at least save you time and good humor to clean up in the apartment after your pet. It just so happens that Inubox is the first automated dog toilet that can be admired (or in action?) At CES, and soon you can even support it on Kickstarter.
The makers of Inubox consider their device to be the first automated indoor dog toilet on the market, and they are probably right. According to the information they provided, Inubox detects when the dog enters the platform and takes care of its need, then stows it away and starts the cleaning process. This in turn removes waste from the platform and returns it to a clean and usable surface so that the dog can use his private toilet again. I do not know whether it is an advantage or a disadvantage of the product, but all waste is not discharged, for example, into the sewage system, but automatically placed in a bag that closes when a given level of filling is reached. These are, of course, plastic and disposable, and their tightness guarantees no unpleasant odors.
As is the case these days, even a dog toilet is intelligent, and the owner can connect to it to make sure, for example, if the bag needs to be replaced. However, the operation of this miracle on a larger scale will be verified by the founders, who will soon be able to contribute a little bit to the development of the project during the Kickstarter campaign and, as a result, receive their own copy of Inubox. Unfortunately, details are still missing.
