FIRST MECOSYSTEM FOR DOGS
Together, Ogilvy and dreikant are developing an intelligent Mecosystem for dogs. Consisting of the SmartBowl bowl, SmartCollar collar, a mobile phone app and NFC chips for dog food packaging, dog owners can feed their darling much more accurately, monitor activity and thus respond more specifically to the needs of their best friend. For retail groups, the system can open up new distribution channels and enable deeper customer loyalty.
TIMELESS DESIGN AND TECHNICAL REFINEMENTS
The feeding bowl consists of a high-quality wooden body and a food-safe Corian inlay. The base hides the electronics, which can be charged without contact. The bowl recognizes different dogs by the SmartCollar collar. The SmartCollar collar is practically a Smartwatch for dogs. The collar transmits activity data from the pedometer and GPS to the bowl or directly to a mobile phone app. Through appealing and intuitive user interfaces from Ogilvy, the dog owner is shown the dog’s activity and the amount of food required. An integrated scale and LED display in the bowl helps to fill in the optimal amount. The bowl recognizes by NFC which food is filled in. Via the app, the dog owner can reorder his favourite food directly.
