Fully-Automated iKuddle Smart Kitty Litter Box Launches on Kickstarter

May 14, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2019--

iKuddle is launching a smart IoT enabled litter box to make manually cleaning your cat’s waste a thing of the past. iKuddle automatically self-cleans, eliminates odors, and packs away the waste for a simple, hygienic disposal.

“By creating sensors that track when your cat enters and leaves the iKuddle, the system not only knows when it’s time to clean up, but can help track the health of your furry friend by sending you updates as to how often they use the iKuddle.” Says iKuddle CEO Kevin Cai. “It’s an innovative solution using the latest smart technology and automation solutions to create a system that maintains the highest levels of cleanliness and hygiene for both you and your pet.”

iKuddle provides end-to-end automation of the litter box, making cleanup a breeze. The system’s “Auto Litter Packing” feature automatically packs the cat’s waste into a small bag that is hygienically sealed and can be discarded at your convenience. iKuddle is also a money saver - by reducing litter usage up to 50% by only removing the clumps and leaving unused litter behind. The system is completely modular, allowing you to fully-automate cleaning or intervene manually as needed.

Perhaps most exciting of all, iKuddle features a replaceable carbon-based deodorizing system, which filters out all unpleasant odors, keeping your living space fresh and scent-free.

Features include:

  • Auto litter packing
  • Self-cleaning
  • Built-in deodorizing system
  • Option to plug in or use its built-in lithium battery that lasts for 2 weeks between charges
  • App-enabled for remote functionality
  • Reduces the number of litter boxes needed in a household
  • Controls waste disposal from a smartphone app

The revolutionary system and its lightweight, minimalist design has already garnered buzz on various media outlets, including The New York Times and made a splash earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. With so many cat owners excited about the prospect of never having to clean a litter box again, iKuddle is launching a Kickstarter campaign to bring this device to the North American market.
