Xiaomi Smart Pet Fountain je A 24-hour healthy water keeper for your pets that simulates a mountain spring, using a circulating water flow system with oxygen circulation. In this way, it serves pets with oxygen-rich running water that suits their nature and increases their interest in drinking water. Thanks to the efficient four-stage deep filtration system, fine particles, hair and residual chlorine, as well as calcium and magnesium ions that cause kidney stones to form, are effectively intercepted and filtered, providing healthy and tasty water that pets love to drink. The height of the fountain has been tested multiple times to avoid splashing sound when the pet approaches the device. Water diversion is designed for slow and quiet flow, while an overhead pump can reduce resonances. The operation of the device is controlled within 30 dB. Three-stage mute provides a quiet environment.
Paired with the Xiaomi Home app, the Xiaomi Smart Pet Fountain can send a reminder to your phone when you need to add water, clean the fountain and replace the filter. Touch the function button or use the app to switch between different modes for everyday use. The device has user-friendly indicator lights that allow easy real-time monitoring. The lights provide intuitive and easy-to-understand indications, while the transparent window allows real-time control of the water level. When the water runs out, the Xiaomi Home app and the red water level indicator on the fountain will remind you to refill the water.
Accumulated hair can cause the water pump to become clogged. Therefore, the filter has a split design and magnetic levitation water paddles that are easily detached for regular cleaning, effectively ensuring high quality water for pets. The electric circuit is hidden and separated from the water circuit, while the bright tank can be cleaned easily and effortlessly. The water tank and lid comply with requirements for materials that come into contact with food, ensuring clean, high-quality and safe water for pets. The volume of 2 l meets the water needs of an adult cat for 4-7 days, releasing safe and clean water for your pet, so you can travel without worry on short trips. The lid can also store water, releasing a small amount of drinking water in the event of a power outage.

Xiaomi CyberDog: An open-source four-legged robot
Xiaomi CyberDog is another bold step in researching the technology of the future. CyberDog is the pinnacle of Xiaomi’s engineering prowess, condensed into a software upgradeable open source robot. CyberDog is Xiaomi’s entry into the world of four-legged robotics for the open source community and developers worldwide. Robotics fans interested in CyberDog can compete or collaborate with other like-minded Xiaomi fans, together encouraging the development and potential of four-legged robots.
CyberDog is calibrated with Xiaomi’s internally developed servo motors that enable high speed, agility and a wide range of motion. With a maximum torque of up to 32 Nm and a rotation speed of up to 220 rpm, CyberDog is able to perform various movements at speeds of up to 3.2 m/s, as well as complicated actions such as back flips. CyberDog is powered by the NVIDIA® Jetson Xavier™ NX platform, an AI supercomputer that includes 384 CUDA® cores, 48 Tensor cores, 6 Carmel ARM processors and 2 deep learning acceleration systems. For its owners, CyberDog effortlessly processes the vast data captured by its own sensor system. For full modeling of biological organisms, CyberDog is equipped with 11 high-precision sensors that provide instant feedback to control movements. These include touch sensors, cameras, ultrasonic sensors, GPS modules and more, giving CyberDog an enhanced ability to sense, analyze and communicate with its environment.
