As if starchitect-designed dog houses aren't fancy enough, electronics giant Samsung has decided to create the ultimate high-tech luxury dwelling for the world's most pampered pups. Making its debut at this year's Crufts dog show in Birmingham, England, the Dream Doghouse offers the following indulgences: an AstroTurf treadmill, a hydro-therapy pool, a paw-operated snack dispenser, designer vinyl wallpaper, and of course, a built-in Samsung tablet.
The curvy kennel was designed and fabricated over six weeks and cost a total of £20,000 (~$30,000). Andy Griffiths, president of Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland, said in a press release, "The Samsung Dream Doghouse looks sleek and modern, featuring the kind of tech the discerning dog of the future will need." But it seems that future isn't here yet, as the Dream Doghouse is only a one-off design that will be given away in a social media contest.
