A Closer Look At The WowWee CHiP Interactive Robot Pet Dog
What’s better than bringing home a new pet dog? A new notebook computer, tablet or smartphone? No, although they are very exciting, to be sure, bringing home a new pet for the first time is the ultimate special experience. The advances in high technology have come a long way in helping to make what was once thought to be impossible, a reality and nothing compares to the WoWWee CHIP Robot Pet Dog.
WowWee, a cutting edge start up company has been active in the deign and development of electronic toys for 28 years, and their experience as an innovator of hi-tech consumer robotic products is revolutionizing the industry and enhancing the consumer experience’ and expectations. In September, 2016, WowWee released CHiP, their new Canine Home Intelligent Pet, a truly interactive robot dog with advanced artificial intelligence that connects and communicates with its human owners. CHiP combines cutting-edge technology and sophisticated artificial intelligence to give owners a truly authentic pet experience without all the trouble and worry associated with owning a biological dog.
The fact is, that CHiP, is not is not just another run-of-the-mill toy store compromise; CHIP the Pet Dog is an actual ROBOT. You would be hard pressed to find a product with this level of sophistication and authenticity.
WoWWee CHIP Robot Pet Dog was developed from the application of scientific knowledge, not found anywhere else. Similar products are designed and produced as toys by toy makers and are electronic pets that cannot hold up against current AI technology standards. They are not much better than the tin battery powered robots that our dads had when they were kids. Many of today’s options are still somewhat limited. The Zoomer Kitty made a splash on the market upon its release with nothing more than a few built-in commands and movements. Unlike CHiP, most toys are destined for the toy chest, along with the old baseball mitt and abandoned action figures.
With CHiP, consumers will purchase a truly interactive robot dog that has the capacity to learn and provide true companionship. WowWee has incorporated many advanced features that are truly amazing. These include things from voice recognition to BlueTooth connectivity, and GestureSense™, so your pet can react to clapping hand and touch. CHiP has Mecanum wheels so that he can move in any direction, like a real dog and accelerometer and gyroscopes so CHiP knows when he’s been picked up. BeaconSense™ technology is a proprietary indoor GPS system that provides seamless Bluetooth connectivity. With an excess of sensors, CHiP exhibits an awareness of his environment and links with three smart accessories to guide his movement and his learning curve. These accessories include CHiP’s SmartBall, his SmartBed for charging, and his owner’s SmartBand.
The smart accessories are an integral part of your new pet being enabled to learn about you and his new home while providing an authentic emotional bond between pet and owner. The more a new owner interacts and plays with her new robot dog, the more unique the experience becomes. WowWee asserts that no two CHiP experiences will be the same because no two owners are alike.
The innovative SmartBand provides CHiP with the ability to recognize his owner and is the tool you will use to teach CHiP everything he needs to know while training him to do all the fun tricks you want him to perform. The SmartBand also serves as a notification center, alerting you with light indicators if CHiP wants to play, is hungry or needs to find his bed and charge up.
There is also a free companion app available for both iOS and Android that features the same controls you can use on the SmartBand. It allows for important owner customizations.
Infrared sensors give CHiP a 360 degree view of his environment, allowing CHiP chase and retrieve the SmartBall for games as simple as go fetch and as much fun as a rousing game of soccer. In fct, CHiP is a very talented and enthusiastic gaolie.
At an estimated retail price of $199.99, there isn’t a smart device on the market that can match CHiP for fun activities and innovation.
