icPooch, the Spokane tech startup that wants the world to have a simple way to communicate long-distance with their dogs, is after a new round of funding, via Kickstarter.
Last year, Brooke Martin and her dad, Chris Martin, launched the company which intends to develop and sell a smart-device system that would let owners interact with their pets, via a smartphone or tablet.
Last summer they mounted a $70,000 Kickstarter campaign that wasn't successful.
They're now more than halfway to getting their new target of $20,000. They're at $13,000 and counting, with the Kickstarter campaign ending in early March.
The product primarily is a connected device that lets owners see and interact with their pets, provided the pet is sitting somewhere near the icPooch device. Apart from having a conversation with Fido, the owner is also able to provide the pet a treat, dispensed from a tray in the device.
