Getting a house cat to exercise can be quite a challenge, but a Korean company claims that it’s smart exercise machine can keep felines in tip-top shape even when their owners are away. There’s just one catch – it costs $1,800.
Korean startup Pet Ding unveiled its smart treadmill for cats earlier this month, at CES Las Vegas. The Little Cat relies on LED lights to motivate cats to exercise, allows owners to check on the cat’s activity when they’re away and record encouragement voice messages for their pet, and a companion app lets users set fitness goals for their purring felines.
The smart exercise machine features an auto mode that promises to “provide the ideal workout program for your cat, and manage workout patterns,” but also lets users who want to get more involved in their cat’s workout control the speed of the treadmill.
As to how long the cat stays on the treadmill, well, that depends on how determined it is to catch that LED light moving along the center of the treadmill track. Pet Ding claims that for most cats, 10 seconds of exercise on the treadmill should be enough, while fatter felines will need to put in a few minutes of work. Luckily, the smart gadget automatically calculates the cat’s body-mass index and can customize the speed and duration of the workout based on its needs.
The Little Cat smart treadmill bill hit the market later this year, at a price of around $1,800.
