Brooke Martin (pictured), a 13-year-old Spokane high school freshman, will have an unusual report on “how I spent my summer vacation.” Martin spent a good part of the past six months helping launch iCPooch, a Spokane Web startup that will give dog owners an interactive way to connect with their pets. She’s enlisted the help of dozens of professionals, family members and friends, sharpening the business plan and lining up financing. Brooke and her father, Chris Martin, hope to start manufacturing products by the end of the year. With an estimated retail price of $169, iCPooch is an 18-inch Wi-Fi kiosk that could be called Skype for Fido. With a smartphone or tablet and an iCPooch app, a dog owner can connect to the home device and start talking. The owner’s image and voice come from a tablet attached to the iCPooch device, stationed on the floor/Tom Sowa, SR. More here.
