Obe pet bowl

November 2014

Obe is an intelligent cat and dog food bowl that helps pets lose weight. It connects via Wi-Fi to a smartphone app that allows pet owners to monitor or adjust their dog’s eating habits over time. Hillary Jensen, dog lover and founder of Obe, approached MATTER to design the bowl, the on-product interface, the app and the product branding in advance of its launch on Kickstarter.

Under Hoang Nguyen's creative direction, I contributed industrial design work from sketch ideation, prototyping, and CAD modeling for the dog bowl and smart base. For phase 2 of the project I became design lead, designing the cat bowl and creating final assets for handoff to engineering and manufacturing.
