Furbo is a doggy cam that dispenses pet treats

You need to head out, but you don’t want to leave your dog unattended. Check out Furbo, the world’s most advanced dog-sitter.

It works as a camera, so you can check in on your mutt whenever you like. But it will also dispense treats at the touch of a button, so you can keep your pooch sweet for when you get home.

There’s a barking detector too. When Fido pipes up, you’ll receive a notification on your smartphone through the app. Furbo will then give you the option of using the camera to see what he or she is barking at.

It lets you record video too, so if your canine does something hilarious, you can capture it for posterity.

Like other pet cams, it has two-way audio, so you can speak to your pet as well as hear them. You can zoom in, too, to see exactly what it is they’re chewing. In addition, it has night vision, so you’ll be able to see what they’re up to after dark.

Furbo has passed its funding goal with 22 days to go. Get in quick, and you can pick one up for $99 (£68) on an early bird. It will ship in July.
