Have you ever found yourself watching Planet Earth, wishing you could take home one of those adorable Emperor Penguins to have as a pet of your own? While having a real-life penguin may not be a feasible option, with Jarpet you could one day have your own augmented reality zoo right on your desk.
With many options to choose from such as elephants, squirrels and butterflies, you’re sure to find an animal friend that you enjoy. Each creature is downloaded via USB to a jar habitat where it is 3D projected to have lifelike movements using multi-sensory technology. Every downloaded animal grows from infancy to adult and can then be observed to learn about its habits and behaviors.
Jarpet is a 2012 red dot award: design concept winner and we want one!
