Don't like cleaning up after your pet dog? Hate stepping on toys that might as well be nails on your living room? Then you'll like this device. It provides an incentive to clean up toys.
The Tidy Dog hopes to trump convenience with a treat that's automatically delivered every time a toy is returned to the box.
The sensors used to detect a returned toy can also detect the vibrations if your dog is trying to hack the dispenser. No treat will be dispensed until everything is stable and your dog is clear.
The bin also uses a built-in timer to prevent a dog from simply picking up a toy, immediately dropping it, and then collecting a treat. Once an object has been picked up no treats will be dispensed for a full 30 seconds.
The creators of the Tidy Dog are currently raising funds on Kickstarter, and to date it has achieved almost half of its $20,000 goal. [Kickstarter via Gizmag]
