Varram is propelled by two wheels, and made of impact-resistant non-toxic polycarbonate and silicone. It can be loaded up with any type of treats, which it dispenses as it scuttles around on either hard or carpeted floors. An infrared obstacle-avoidance system keeps it from running into things, or getting stuck in confined spaces.
Utilizing an iOS/Android app, users can schedule the times of day at which it will engage their pets, along with the duration of those sessions, the number of treats that will be dispensed, and the routes that the robot will follow – a built-in IMU (inertial measurement unit) helps it orient itself.
When they're at home with their pet, users can also utilize the app to manually control Varram in real time via Bluetooth.
