This Robot Ball Lets You Play With Your Dog, Even If You’re at Work

We love our pets and we want to spend as much time with them as possible. Unfortunately, work, errands, and other responsibilities get in the way.
But what if there were a way to make time for your pet while putting in the same amount of effort as playing a smartphone game?
Well, there is!
