В Италии разработали "умную миску" для животных

With two bowls now don’t sing

The device is a removable Cup with magnetic mount, and wide angle camera forward facing.

 

Italian firm artificial intelligence Volta developed the smart bowl to prevent theft of food. Gadget called Mookkie will be useful primarily to owners of multiple Pets, according to the New Atlas.

The device is a removable Cup with magnetic mount, and wide angle camera forward facing. As long as the selected animal, which owns the bowl, not around, transparent polycarbonate cover prevents access to the food.

However, when the right animal approaches the device built-in microprocessor uses a deep neural network to confirm the “personality” of the animal with the help of face recognition technology.

If he determines that it is “correct” a dog or a cat Cup cover is temporarily removed, allowing them to eat is a little different from the unlocking function in the face which is available on some smartphones.

Thus, the new gadget will not allow that one animal “steals” food from another bowl.

Using a smartphone app, pet owners can receive notifications about what the animal ate, but also alert about the fact that the bowl is empty – Mookkie can see what is in the bowl and can identify what the food was gone.

As an added bonus, the device also has got built-in night light to help Pets find their bowl in the dark.

Volta plans to introduce Mookkie on the market in September of this year at a price of 189 dollars.

Recall that a cat named Nala became the most popular cat in the social network Instagram. The animal even has its own website. Now cat 3.8 million subscribers, she also became the record holder of the Guinness Book of records as the most popular cat Instagram 2017.
