The maker of the Sphero for cats is back with the new Enabot EBO Air – just in time to celebrate National Cat Day in the U.S. and the U.K. on October 29, 2022. Actually, the new Enabot EBO Air is not just for you to check on your feline friends.
Enabot has taken its robot companion concept to include humans but since it is going to be National Cat Day soon, we thought it could use some credits as a robot companion for cats.
In addition to offering a way to keep an eye on your feline friends, you can also interact with them through voice through the built-in speaker while the microphone lets you hear whatever that is going on on the other end.
You can of course move it around remotely from wherever you may be as long as there is an internet connection.
The onboard 1080p camera is paired with a 118° field of view lens that offers a crisp, wide view of your home, family members, and cats. For the latter, you can actually schedule it to come out and play with your furry companions. And oh, it can perform tricks with cute noises too.
In addition to the built-in laser pointer feature which you activate from the app, there is a hole for attaching a silicone feather accessory to let play out the great cat chase too.
The camera is night vision capable and it will automatically switch to night vision in low-light areas and/or conditions. That brings us to another nifty feature: a security camera.
Little Enabot EBO Air can serve as a security camera, keeping an eye on your property while you are away. There’s a dedicated security mode in the app. In this mode, you can get notifications about suspicious movements. EBO Air is fully capable of differentiating between pets and humans, so your cats will not trigger a security alert.
The footage is stored onboard memory but it also has a microSD card slot that supports up to 256 GB if you need more storage. Finally, Enabot EBO Air can be set up for automatic recharging. When the battery is low, it can return to the charging station and get topped up.
