People love their pets. Unfortunately it’s impossible to be with them all the time and many pets spend hours alone in a home or apartment, pining over their missing owner, bored out of their minds and possibly destroying everything in sight. This is the problem that recent crowdfunding champion Petcube Inc. intends to solve. The company sought $100,000 on Kickstarter this fall and attracted a whopping $251,000 over the course of its 42-day campaign. Watch Video.
