At CES 2020, we saw just about every product evolve into a smarter version of itself. Let your imagination run wild with everyday items as you imagine each one of them transforms into part robots. One such product that stood out was this modular AI litter box by iKuddle that did a lot more than gather attention and was an Innovation Award Honoree at the world’s largest tech fest – let’s break it down, shall we?
I am going to reveal the best feature first because it truly takes care of the most annoying task when you have a pet – cleaning the litter box. Yes, this AI litter box is self-cleaning! After your cat leaves the box, iKuddle will separate the waste from clean litter, you can initiate this through your app and it will notify you once the cleaning is complete. After that, you can tap the auto-packing button on the app or the litter box and it will seal the waste in a small bag which you can discard at your convenience. This feature makes me feel like we have truly arrived in the new decade!
iKuddle’s litter box also has a deodorizing system with a fully enclosed carbon filter that works for 5 minutes after your cat leaves the box, eliminating 80%-90% of litter box odors. It also comes with a health app that uses the sensing system to monitor the frequency your cat uses the litter box. The data is collected and displayed as a bar chart on the app, letting you know if your cat is in good shape. This smart litter box is eco-conscious and reduces litter usage by 30% saving you time and money.
Unlike other self-cleaning litter boxes, this AI-enabled pet product has detachable components such as the scooper and litter box enclosure which makes it easy to maintain. It also has a plug-in charging cable with a battery that lasts up to two weeks so you can travel with your cat and be stress-free. iKuddle makes me want to get a cat just so I have a reason to buy a smart litter box for it!
