Plexidor Pet Door–Maybe Just A Little Too Far
Maybe, just maybe, we spoil our pets a bit too much.
Oh, sure, we don’t think twice about the occasional chew bone or some such, but some dogs today eat better than some people do. Plus there’s the add-ons–clothing lines for pets, Xbox Live subscriptions (when do they PLAY??), dog houses made of crystal, even health insurance for pets! It’s crazy! And it only gets weirder when I start talking about the electronic dog door.
Dubbed the Plexidor Pet Door, it’s an electronic dog door with a vertical sliding door that slides up when your pet, who’s wearing an RFID chip in his or her collar, gets sufficiently close to it.
It’s a great measure for folks concerned about burglars using the pet door as a means of entry (a la Home Alone), but still wanting your pet to have the maximum amount of freedom. They cost a whopping eight hundred bucks a pop, and that’s before you add on the cost of professional installment. This thing has to be HARDWIRED into your house’s electrical system.
Still, it’s terribly awesome, and if you like even having the latest gadgets for your dog, then this one should be on your list.
