Kibus is like a Keurig for your cats and dogs

In a recent meeting at Brinc’s Hong Kong headquarters, the Barcelona based team behind Kibus petcare was quick to point out that most millennial consider pets to be a member of their family. This kind of statement manifests itself in many ways. But for many, it simply means home-cooked meals for their cats and dogs.

For a rabbit owner, it means rinsing off some arugula in the sink once a day. But for other pet owners, the prospect is a fair bit more complex as they may have to put in more effort into preparing meals for their four-legged friend.

The pitch behind Kibus is an attempt to split the difference. The company’s appliance is developed and designed to provide something like a home-cooked meal for your pets, with less minimum effort.

“The system is known to accept plastic cartons filled with freeze-dried pet food.”

All you need to do is pour in water and the system will heat it up, cooking the items in the process.

The company will launch a Kickstarter campaign in order to promote and sell the product. The product currently is in the prototype form. It will be available at $199.  The initial version of the product will include user-friendly pods. However, in the future the company may have plans to limit these to the pre-made variety, clearly going after a kind of ink cartridge to monetizing the system.

The pods will work out to around 1 Euro a day with the machine rationing out foods for your cats and dogs, one to five times a day. Each is expected to last for a week or somewhere in the neighborhood of three days for the largest dog. To start, the company is currently providing five different food options. This includes two options for cats and three options for dogs. However, more options are going to be added soon.

Users can keep a check on the system from a distance and program in the sound of their own voice to call the pet over when it’s feeding time.
