KAMBRIA – An introduction of Kambria Pet Care Robot DAO with pet community insights, robotics solution, partnership invitations and DAO timeline. (Last updated: Sep 14, 2023)
Following the path to making technology more accessible and socially beneficial, we are provided with an opportunity to support this purpose: A Tech Savvy Community Takes Care Of Pets With Pet Care Robot DAO.
In this article, we would like to introduce an overview of this DAO.
|Co-owning technology via Kambria DAOs|
A DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) is a community using blockchain to facilitate decentralized autonomy. The control is spread out among all community members who use governance tokens to vote on DAO’s rules or changes, voting power is equivalent to the number of tokens they possess. By this, we can empower the community with trust, transparency, and automation, and enable open-source solutions to be commercialized by their community.
Each Kambria DAO is started by a Dev Team submitting their proposal with a solution of technology they can develop and open for the community to co-own. The community collectively buys into the solution by participating in the DAO. Then Dev Team starts to develop the solution and the development progress will be managed monthly.The DAO as owners of the solution will decide and contribute to the commercialization of the solution, as well as get revenue sharing for their contribution.
Please check this page for a more detailed model and FAQs of Kambria DAOs.
Why Pet Care Robot?
We all love Pets…
Any of us are familiar with the experience of playing or owning or caring for a pet. In addition to being a friend, having a pet can help us reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, reduce loneliness, encourage physical exercise and enjoyment, and even improve cardiovascular health. Caring for an animal can help children become more secure and active as they grow older. Pets can also provide essential companionship to elderly people.
According to HABRI Benchmark Survey of U.S. Pet Owners, 76% of pet owners say having a pet has improved their personal health; 22% of pet owners say a doctor or therapist has recommended a pet for them, and 82% of pet owners agree that the government should promote pet ownership for a healthier society.
In the majority of houses globally, pets progressively become friends, even members of the family. Moreover, half of all individuals in the world have a pet. According to the Pet Ownership Statistics point out that 33 globally households own pets with 70% of U.S. households (90.5 million homes) as of 2021; 38% of EU households (88 million homes) as of 2020, and 32% of households in Asia-Pacific (APAC) countries own a dog, compared to 26% who own cats.
Since they are friends and family, more and more individuals are seeking out the best solutions and services to care for them. It was estimated that American pet owners spent $9.7 billion in 2021 on services such as insurance, grooming, training, and boarding in addition to veterinary costs. The U.S. spent $31.4 billion on veterinary care and goods sales in 2020. Each year, dog owners spend over $1,000 on veterinary visits, medications, and supplies.
…but it also comes with responsibilities
Although having a pet can be a lot of pleasure, there are many additional issues that can arise from time to time that can be troublesome. According to a survey conducted, over a third of committed pet owners admit they were completely unprepared for the commitment and mess that their furry friends would bring to the home. For example, 31% of pet owners are bothered by their pets’ shedding, or 26% are tired of picking up poo.
Nowadays, thanks to the development of technology, innovators have also invented a few innovative solutions to make pet care more convenient.
Pet Care Robot – Suggested features
So how can we build a robot to help with the pet care? From our research of current solutions in the market, we suggest the pet care robot solutions to have features such as:
- Video recording & monitoring (Enabot)
- Pet feeding (Feeder-Robot)
- Pet entertainment (Pumpkii)
- Self-cleaning (Litter-Robot)
Note that under application type, autonomous pet feeding robot is predicted to dominate the market and valued at US$ 571.6 million in 2023, representing 41.5% market share.
Now, Kambria would love to call for the community to join this Pet Care Robot DAO, to create the best and most efficient solution for our “furry friends”.
The Pet Care Robot DAO
Our approach to building the DAO is to partner with a Dev Team experienced in R&D pet care robots or similar solutions, as well as with Community Partners and Pet Care Service Partners…
Phase 1: Develop a pet care robot solution
Phase 2: Commercialize the solution, with DAOs members in each country, can team up to manufacture and sell products or implement robotics pet care services locally.
To Dev Teams
If you are experienced in R&D pet care robots or similar solutions, and you are interested in collaborating with Pet Care Robot DAO as Dev Team Partner to develop the solution, please submit your proposal by the timeline here to demonstrate how you should be selected to develop this solution.
The proposal should show:
- Team profiles and relevant experiences
- Introduction of your solution such as ideation, market research, prototypes and demos…
- Development plan until the solution is ready for commercialization (MVP+) in the 1st product cycle. Note that the development progress will be managed monthly as per Kambria DAO model
From our fundraising experiences, we updated our qualification criteria to align with expectations of potential investors, including:
- The teams already have prototypes to prove technical feasibility of your robotics concept
- Your development plan is within 6 months to MVP, then the DAO community will join hands to bring it to market
- Your quotation (1st product cycle) is up to $150.000, including prototype development work .
Please note that this partnership has the potential for long-term collaboration spanning multiple product cycles, contingent upon the success of each cycle.
To Service Partners
If you are experienced in doing pet care services and interested in collaborating with this DAO as Service Partners, we would love to have your participation in solution development phase to suggest your needs and test the solution.
Then in the commercialization phase, we can collaborate to implement the pet care services using these robots.
To Fund Contributors
Some financial information we would like to highlight for your reference:
- According to the report published by Next Move Strategy Consulting, the global pet care robots market generated USD 1.41 billion in 2021, and is expected to garner USD 3.65 billion by 2030, witnessing a CAGR of 11.2% from 2022 to 2030.
- With reference to the cost structure of tech companies especially robotics companies, we define the DAO financial framework as below (for more information about Kambria DAOs financial framework, governance model and fundraising campaigns please read here):
To Community Partners
Some potential collaborations we would like to propose:
- Raising public awareness: We can cross-share pet companionship actions among our communities. We can also co-organize activities to raise awareness, for example, Safestyle previously launched a nationwide #DoginWindow photo competition to celebrate USA National Dog Day on August 26.
- PCRD Hubs: Community Partner will lead the DAO community in your Hub to participate in the solution commercialization and get paid for the Hub’s contribution
If you have any additional collaboration ideas, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us if this cause resonates with you and you want to be a part of this social impact.

Proposal invitation for new DAOs: Open Tech for Future Society
Last but not least, we would like to take this chance to invite you to submit proposals for other DAOs. Not only current DAOs with robotics solutions set by Kambria, but also the new DAOs with solutions in other deep tech verticals that you are working on R&D and want the community to join hands.
If you are interested, please join our Discord community to stay informed about the announcement to be released soon.
