I know I can’t be the only who’s always wondered what dogs see after that episode of The Simpsons where we’re taken inside the life of Santa’s Little Helper. While this quirky gadget from CES 2015 won’t quite give us that experience, it’s the next best thing.
You attach this collar to your dog, and in addition to GPS location features (which we’ve seen on countless smart collars before), there’s a nice camera embedded and a speaker system to issue remote commands to your dog.
The camera can be useful to keep an eye on your dog’s whereabouts. Out and about? Make sure he isn’t going anywhere near a street or somewhere else he’s supposed to. At home? Save yourself the trouble of having to clean up a mess by making sure he stays away from the trash.
And if you aren’t quite close enough to your dog to have him obey your commands, you can speak into your phone’s microphone and he’ll hear it just as if you were right next to him. My only issue? Finding a dog training course that’ll help me teach my dog even just a pinch of obedience. Hands-on video rests above.
