iFetch

The Hamill family came up with a great idea, and worked with a local design firm to develop the industrial design for the iFetch. It was our job to engineer a reliable product. Through multiple rounds of engineering, prototyping, testing, and refinement we delivered a solution that stands up to even the most persistent four-legged fetching friend.

Pump provided all of the mechanical engineering needs for iFetch and leveraged one of our business partners for the electrical engineering and firmware design. We supported iFetch through development, a successful Kickstarter campaign, multiple pet trade shows, and production, where we continue to assist with sustaining engineering tasks.
