We will begin by saying that we understand this is one of our more ridiculously priced gadgets that has been featured but we also know some dog food owners can be a little nutty. We left out cat people because… well, your weird. Sorry, hate to break it to you. So Japan will often times set trends when it comes to technology and this one has apparently caught on like wild fire. Which means it is only a matter of time before we see it in the states and probably on the newest Real Housewives show (a sign that America is declining but that is a whole other post).
The Remoca Dog Food Bowl Camera takes two ideas that people seem to fall in love with: puppies and voyeurism. Not the dirty voyeurism (perverts) but the kind who are obsessed with observing in general. Any dog owner has wondered while they are away from the house, “what in the world does my dog do all day?” and Remoca gives you the chance to find out. You won’t have to buy one of those creepy hidden webcams but instead see good old Duke up front and center. The high price probably comes from being able to actually swivel the camera around and change the angle. Great, so now we have to keep track of and carry another remote? Nope, it is actually all integrated within your smartphone. This allows you a lot of flexibility to check out how the puppy is doing no matter where in the world you might be.
If we wanted to actually think of some ways to use this gadget outside of pure joy and entertainment, you could actually use this thing for some good. Let’s say your puppy has got some sort of sickness and the medicine is actually placed within the food, you can carefully watch from afar to tell if he ate the medicine or not. It doesn’t sound like a big deal but for those that have been in the situation where you are 5 minutes late for work and waiting on your dog to eat his medicine, it can be a life saver. If you have multiple dogs, you might even think about using this to make sure one of the little guys isn’t being pushed out of the way at dinner time while you’re away. Whether you use the Remoca for pure entertainment or a health reason that makes it OK to spend $800, you can get what you need with this handy gadget.
