I wrote a preview of PetBot on National Dog Day and now it's available for pre-order via Indiegogo. The PetBot might look like other Internet-of-Things webcams, but this one has a twist. Through the remote control app, you can release a pet treat on demand. Billed as "The first PetCam that calls you," the PetBot enables your pet to be trained to reach out to you, and take a "Pet Selfie" to get your attention. You get a notification and can interact with your pet thanks to the built-in microphone and speakerphone.
