K9 Connect

K9 Connect is a service that enables dogs and their owners to stay in touch in a post-digital world. The system consists of a base station and a collar embedded with sensors that detect the dog’s presence and provide a two-way communication link with the owner via his phone.

The K9 Cloud service is a network of dog-lovers which provides easy access to user volunteered dog well-being services. Owners use a simple and effective rating system to easily connect with other trustworthy dog-lovers. Think couch-surfing, but for pets!

The concept was the result of an introduction to service design workshop, in which we focused on conveying a service ecosystem idea using appropriate video techniques. Given the nature of K9 Connect, we used classic stop motion animation to enhance the playfulness of the idea.
