By Dorothy Tan, 03 Jun 2016
The owner of house cats Jasper and Ruben obviously cares a lot about his pets’ fitness—not only has he built them a big exercise wheel, but he has also equipped it with a fitness tracker that collects data about the cats’ performances.
Featuring a Raspberry Pi, this awesome smart cat wheel can “track speed, calculate distance traveled, and determine the equivalent running speed” of the feline runners.
A livestream of the action on the wheel, together with a data overlay, is also available online—if you are interested in building a similar exercise wheel for your cat, you can find out how it is done here.
Jasper and Ruben even have a YouTube channel that features videos of them chasing their fitness goals on the exercise wheel.
How far would you go to ensure that your pet is healthy and getting enough exercise?
