the problem

Doing some work in a coffee shop with laptop but need to go to bathroom? Studying in library but have to leave your seat to get another book? Leaving your stuff behind make you anxious, brining stuff with you by the time you come back the spot might long gone already.

Sharing culture is getting a lot more popular than anytime: offices embrace open space instead of little blocks, shared working spaces are available at an affordable price, shared rentals are a lot more popular than hotels.

the solution

It reflects our human desire to connect with real world and real people, which we found very delightful. However, under such sharing condition, how can you protect your privacy and belongings? How can you effectively define you temporary “territory” or “space” without being rude and offensive?

To address these issues we approach regular utilitarian-based security system with a humanity twist. We made WatchDog to protect your space and belongings in a very direct but subtle way: no one can be mad at an adorable puppy even he’s barking at you, right?
