Petcube webcam lets owners feed and tease cats

Pet gadgets are in fashion at Berlin's Ifa tech show.

One start-up is at the event showing off an internet-connected camera that uses lasers to let owners play with their cats and dogs from afar and another camera that lets them give the animals treats.
