Here in Los Angeles, devoted pet owners are no different. We will do, or give, anything to make our pets feel like family. From Wi-Fi-connected snack dispensers to fitness activity trackers, discover the latest offering of luxury gadgets making the four-legged set just as tech-savvy as their owners.

It may look and feel like a regular collar, but KYON is the thinnest GPS tracker collar in the market. Wherever you are, the collar will notify you of the exact location of your pet.

Whether your dog’s sleepy, happy, feeling too cold or too hot, you’ll be able to monitor his or her activity levels.
This innovative standalone device that operates as a laser pointer can provide hours and hours of entertainment for your feline companion.
