Shiraseru Am by Anicall is a smart pet tag that's currently part of a crowdfunding campaign, aiming to bring more pet owners in tune with a furry friend's activities and wellbeing.

The notifier works alongside a smartphone app, informing pet owners of how a pet is doing while its owner is away. This behavior data is collected and saved to the cloud via Bluetooth, so that larger patterns can begin to be detected using AI technology and studies on cats and dogs. This wearable for pets is more than a tracker, and provides owners with the tools to better understand a pet's eating habits, behavior, emotional status and overall health.

From feeding to training and play, technology is becoming a powerful tool to strengthen the bond between pet owner and animal.
