iPet Companion, developed by Idaho-based software company Reach-In, is a service that allows online denizens to virtually play with real cats or dogs. Watching real-time camera recordings of the pets, users can have their computers manipulate robotic toys to play with the animals. No longer will pets and their owners sit bored at home and work, now that they can interact throughout the day.

The service can be setup for personal home usage, and more interestingly, has been adopted in many animal shelters to encourage potential pet-owners to play with orphaned cats and dogs. Animals in shelters benefit from the play and activity, and shelters have also seen an upswing in adoptions and support donations after implementing the service. Humans, sitting behind screens, also benefit from the decrease in stress that results from watching the cute kitties play.

To make it social, the online portal for iPet Companion also features a chat box allowing friends to talk and coordinate play.
