Shiba / popsocket & fidget toy

Shiba
Shiba

Shiba Inu dog is one of the most beloved species. Espeically people love to play with them by pinching their cheek. Getting an idea from these facts, we’ve developed a popsocket so that people can feel a new kind of fun outside their smartphone. Our concept is "Shiba dog wants to hang out with me." A Shiba dog will send you a signal like bark or viration, asking you to hang out when you’re busy with using smartphone. Then you can be escaped from phone and spend time with the dog pinching its cheek. In addtion, it has application to connected by bluetooth. You can put frequently used applications and set up the amount of of their using time.
