I love the Jarpet concept for being an innovative and interactive way of exploring the animal kingdom. Basically the Jar is a 3-D projector that hooks up to the computer. You can download information and the app for a 3-D projected pet that sparks into life when the Jar is turned on. Ideal for chidlen, it can turn into a hub for learning the lifecycle of a butterfly to owning a pet squirrel. Kids can enjoy vivid interactions with it, via multi-sensory technology.
There is a USB connection at the base of Jarpet, through which it is charged and transmits information. Online Jarpet shops will provide image data for various animals, and parents can make purchases according to their children’s interests.
Jarpet is a 2012 red dot award: design concept winner.
