betabota : beta service for the pet adoption / Robot pet & Application

betabota : beta service for the pet adoption
betabota : beta service for the pet adoption

Betabota is a beta service that allows people to experience their life with a pet in advance by using a robot pet before adopting a real dog.
As the urban population increases, the number of abandoned dogs in the city is also increasing rapidly. Which causes some serious problems, such as giving direct injury to people or traffic obstruction. Most of the homeless dogs in the cities are those who were abandoned immediately after adoption. Therefore, what we need is a fundamental solution, a solution that can be effective before the adoption stage in order to solve these pet abandoning problems.
