Evaluation

This new model defines communication between people and their pets. The designer has displayed their creativity by making free use of wireless internet technology. This product is highly experimental and is feeling around for new designs in this product category. Proper attention has also been paid to functionality and external appearance. The wood-grained cap, which looks less plastic, makes the product look familiar as part of the interior decor in today''s homes.
