JARPET / Electronic Pet

JARPET

iF concept design award

Children are naturally very curious and they are especially excited about observing nature. However, because our living space is urbanizing at such a rapid rate, children no longer have direct contact to the natural environment,. JARPET projects 3D images of pets and, thanks to multi-sensory technology, children are able to interact with it. Close observation helps children to learn more about animal behavior and habits and encourages them to develop a passion for nature. Compared to keeping an actual pet, this option costs much less and consumes less. Whenever children feel lonely or bored, JARPET is a good companion.
