The Gobone is Designed to Play with Pets When Its Owners are Away

Many pet owners feel guilt for having to leave their dogs at home alone all day and the GoBone is an electronic dog bone that helps to ease some of that guilt.

The smart dog bone will work as an autonomous toy that the dog can interact with. It will have functions such as rolling, spinning and flopping and has a battery life that lasts eight hours. The dog bone is controlled via a smartphone app and can be set to play with just the dog while the homeowner is away, or to play games like hide and seek while the pet and pet owner are together. The outside of the bone is replaceable so once the skin is inevitably destroyed by dog teeth, the surface can be switched out.

The GoBone is the perfect device for guilt-ridden pet owners or just pet owners who would like their dogs to get more exercise but do not have the time or ability to exercise with them.
