Today, you will learn about Footloose smart toilet for cats, which is not only able to clean itself, but also monitors the health of your pet.
About the project
Cats are very clean animals. They wash several times a day and may not go to the toilet for a long time if it is too dirty. Cleaning up after cats is not the most pleasant thing, so many different automatic systems have appeared on the market that simplify this task. But for the most part these are unreliable and short-lived devices.
Petato is raising funds on Kickstarter for the production of its smart cat litter, which takes into account unsuccessful decisions of other manufacturers. Footloose not only knows how to self-clean, but also monitors the health of the cat.
A smart toilet transmits, via Wi-Fi, to a special application, data on the volume and weight of the products of a cat’s vital activity, up to a gram, as well as on the frequency and duration of the cats going to the toilet.
In addition, the tray weighs the cat itself with an accuracy of 100 g, monitors deviations from the norm and in case of problems with the health of the animal will notify about it.
For older cats, there is a step that helps them climb inside.
Each time the cat leaves the toilet, Footloose activates the cleaning of the filler with a delay of eight minutes to make sure that there is definitely no one inside.
The cleaning process can also be activated remotely through a special application.
The lid of the booth is turned inward, the filler with the contents wakes up through the net to separate it from all that is superfluous, and the waste products enter the hermetically closed compartment. Ultraviolet radiation is used for cleaning, and a deodorizing system and a fan cope with an unpleasant odor.
Compared with ordinary toilets, Footloose is rather large: its dimensions are 65 × 54 × 60 cm, weight – 12 kg.
You can order Footloose during a Kickstarter campaign for $ 274. Delivery promise to organize from June 2019.
