     A Kickstarter launched Friday will allow interested parties to set up a camera and pet toys in their home for anyone to play with their pets remotely. Its called the ipet Companion, an Internet-connected camera and device that streams video online and allows basic commands from people watching. They can move the camera, look at their pet and press a button to swing a toy around.

     Obviously, demand is strong. The Kickstarter proved so popular that Scott Harris, iPet Companions founder, said that thousands of people started asking for it.

     The reason why people keep talking about this is the emotional(情感的) connection they have from a thousand miles away. If you want, you can enter a queue to move the camera and play with the pets. Each room has toys that are hooked(钩住) into Internet-connected devices, and you can move them by pressing a button.

    But theres sort of a problem: Pets get bored easily. Young pets will stay more interested than adult pets, but finally even a baby pet will get bored, too. To stop that from happening, youd better limit the pets access(接近) to the boys and change the place where theyre located in the room.

    Harris understands this and said you can plug anything into that adapter(适配器) ---toys that you can get on your own. And thats where the iPet Companion really gets interesting. Harris explained that the device is actually sort of a Trojan horse to bring the Internet of things to more homes. You dont really have to use it for pets. The adapter could be used for any device with an electrical plug---a sprinkler, say, that youd be able to activate to water your grass.

    Our whole goal, our whole purpose is to let anyone control any physical object that they want to while they travel anywhere in the woorld, Harris said.
