What could wearables for cats be? I’ve been working on wearables that aim to improve feline fitness and overall happiness. The system is made up of a smart collar and smart toys.
The talk will cover:
- Research involved: hardware, cat psychology and IoT
- Prototyped the different parts of the wearables at different stages
- Calculating an algorithm for cat steps
- User testing with cats
I would like to challenge attendees to think of new directions for where to take the internet of things. This talk will empower attendees to pursue IoT projects that they otherwise would have been scared off of, through showing them how to simply and effectively prototype and carry out user testing.
