iFetch Automatic Ball Launcher
iFetch isn't the first automatic ball launcher for dogs, but it's about half the cost of the Go Dog Go, and I am more partial to iFetch's video of the dancing Boston Terrier than I am to Go Dog Go's of the spastic Puggle. iFetch also appears to consume less space and fires a smaller version of tennis ball. Like, small enough that I...I mean a person...could also fit them in his...or her...mouth. I wonder if the iFetch could also shoot one of those fist-sized gobstoppers. I would so set it up to nail my friend Cornelius in the back of the head.
iFetch activates only when one of its mini tennis balls rolls through its funnel--presumably, any dog smart enough to hunt down and bring the ball back will be smart enough to figure out how to drop it in the funnel too. After a pause of a few seconds, or enough time for that twinkle-toed Boston Terrier to get its jig going, iFetch fires at one of three selectable launch distances. The device either plugs into a standard outlet or functions on 6 "C" batteries for remote use.
Interested dog owners can make a Kickstarter pledge for the iFetch through July 17, 2013.
