    Want to be an active participant? Safely take semi-automatic control of the laser!

Felik’s AI lets you control the laser in a variety of ways. However, unlike any laser pet toy currently on the market, it’s patented AI algorithm will always do its best to prevent the laser from shining directly on your pet or other humans.

Additionally, Felik will automatically disable the laser if anything gets too close to the device or if it is picked up and moved.

{ Frequently Asked Questions }

Felik uses the same Class 3A laser module as most generic laser pointer products and existing laser toys on the market. While you certainly don’t want to be looking directly into the laser beam, they are all certified safe for brief exposure.

What makes Felik even safer than other pet products is by the way in which it actively runs away from your pets (and humans). Other pet toys which articulate motion within in a circular fashion may inadvertently shine the laser into your pet’s eyes. Felik will not do this as it simply will not occupy the same space as your pet.

As an added safety feature, Felik automatically turns the laser off if something gets too close to it or if it is picked up or moved.

  • Felik works on all surfaces, such as hardwood floors, carpets, tiles, and vinyl.
  • Operates in both bright and dimly lit environments. But don’t worry, it’s smart enough to know not to play at night while the humans sleep.
  • Plays with any animal that has a chase instinct: dogs, cats, and even ducks!
  • Works with one or more pet, simultaneously running away from all of them.
  • Ideal for both large and small rooms. The play area is configurable via app settings.
Yes! In fact, we have originally designed Felik so it can be used without any app, but found that it can be a useful addition. Felik has buttons that can be used to change most of the same settings that can be adjusted with the app. The default out-of-the-box settings should work just fine in most environments, so we expect that some of our users will never download or use the app.

You would still want to get the app so you can upload firmware updates as they become available. Updates will contain new features and bug fixes. Or download it if you want to participate in the play session by directing the AI or modifying its behavior while the play session is in progress.

Felik will work from any angle so long as it can see as much of the room as possible. But it is the nature of laser toys to work best when placed higher up. To that end we recommend hanging Felik on the wall (using a simple push-pin) or using the shelf stand to place it on top of tall furniture items.

Placing Felik higher up means it can work over a larger play area, since it will be able to see more of the room. Conversely, if your room is somewhat small you can place Felik lower to prevent the laser from going onto the walls. Although we find that cats will happily jump up onto walls to get that laser dot

Not at all!

Felik does not need to be connected to your home network to work. Out of the box Felik generates it’s own Wi-Fi hotspot. We encourage you to connect Felik to your home Wi-Fi network for several reasons:

  • Control Felik while your smartphone is connected to your home Wi-Fi network.
  • Control Felik with home automation devices like Amazon Alexa and Google Home (this functionality is in development).
  • Felik can use your home Internet connection for better time-keeping.
While technically possible, we decided not to enable this functionality for a number of reasons:

  1. Streaming live video from within your home over the Internet presents both privacy and security risks. Felik was designed to be autonomous, unlike the pet toys of yesterday where human interaction was pretty much a requirement.
  2. The Internet introduces a lot of lag into the connection as opposed to keeping all digital communications confined to your home Wi-Fi network. If you look at existing pet toys which allow you to interact with your pet over the Internet, the lag is such that any action you request will take a second or longer to actually happen. Your pet is faster than that. Just let Felik take control when you’re not around.
  3. You can simply set up an activation schedule to have Felik activate at certain times during the day even if you’re not at home.

With that in mind, based on your feedback we may add some limited over-the-Internet functionality to Felik in the future. However, we strongly believe that once you see Felik in action you will not want to manually control it – it’s faster than you, human.

We do not recommend it. Felik may be used outdoors for limited amounts of time, but it was not designed to withstand the harsh outdoor environment. Things like humidity, rain, dust, and direct sunlight could damage the device. Therefore we recommend that Felik be used indoors only, and if you do take it outdoors to make sure that you bring it back when you’re finished.
Yes, you may advise the AI where the laser should go, as well as trigger other behaviors while the play session is active.

The AI will attempt to plot an optimal laser course to the new location while avoiding any tracked animals or humans.

Unlike other pet toys, as a safety feature Felik’s AI may disregard your command if you attempt to shine a laser at an animal or a human.
