iFetch dog toy plays fetch with your dog

iFetch has to be one of the cutest Kickstarter campaigns we've come across. It was started by the Hamill family from Austin, TX who have a very active toy poodle named Prancer. Prancer constantly wants to play fetch, so they decided to create a gizmo to keep their pup occupied even when they aren't around to play with him.

It took three years, but they came up with iFetch. It's an indoor ball launcher for small-to-medium sized dogs. Just train your dog to put one of the balls into the funnel and iFetch powers up and launches the ball.

It kinda sounds like iFetch is encouraging dog owners to be lazy, but if you've gotta run some errands, hey why not? So far, 1,013 backers have pledged $68,215 — the original funding goal was $20,000 — and there are still 14 days left on this campaign. A donation of $50 or more gets you an iFetch, so visit the Kickstarter page for the skinny.
