Happy Pet

Happy Pet is an interactive box and web app that serves as a communication system between a caged pet and a busy human.

The system tracks chores like feeding, cleaning, giving water, and playing, then personifies the crab’s emotions as the quality of care changes. The human presses a button when they perform a care taking task, and can check their pet’s happiness level on a mobile website. 
Unlike calorie and chore tracking apps, happy pet can only be updated when the user is near the pets cage. (No cheating, no forgetting) The user receives positive reinforcement by seeing their pet smile. The caged pet gains the opportunity to reach out and ask for the things that he needs.

Happy Pet helps owners of caged animals visualize the pet's happiness by monitoring their care-taking actions.
