+ one is a service that will make pets and their senior owners’ companionship better. By using the home surveillance camera that users already had and machine learning technology to create a matching system that will match with other owners and pets who have similar characteristics in the community, and recommended the appropriate design or products to the user. Our products not only have a series of multifunction daily necessities for both pets and their senior owners but also have a DIY section. The users can download design patterns, and create it at home, experience it before actually buy our product. The community allows users to upload their designs for this new companionship based on their pet’s personality and preferences. In the future, +one will further develop the community. By using the same technology to record how pets being cared. Also, develop a matching system that can found the most suitable person if the owner has anything happened and won’t be able to take care of the pets to make sure pets are not abandoned.
