Having an office pet is an animal lover’s dream come true and is known to not only add fun but also increase collaboration and productivity at the workplace. In a bid to add playfulness to its office, BBH Singapore has adopted a virtual pet black sheep fondly christened by employees as Dotty.
Making use of Flip-Dot display, we brought to life a tamagotchi-style virtual pet called Dotty in the BBH Singapore office. Just like a real pet, employees will need to feed Dotty when it’s hungry, play with it when it’s bored and clean up when it makes a mess. When treated right, it will be able to extend birthday greetings, greet clients, give lunch recommendations and even take a selfie with office friends. The sheep also has its own email address which is used to send passive-aggressive reminders when ignored.
“How do you have all the benefits of an office pet with none of the downside? You can tell our creative tech team had a bit of fun with this one. And it’s even compatible with our new working pattern.”
– John Hadfield, CEO of BBH Singapore
