This is perhaps the cutest tech story we have ever brought you but Nikkon has given us the world’s first PhoDOGrapher. Yep, a dog photographer who takes photos of all the things he likes and experiences.
Nikon achieved this wonderful new insight into the world around us by combining a Heart monitor and a digital camera. The heart rate monitor can be worn on a strap around the dog’s neck. The camera is worn on the dog’s chest with the help of a harness, and the two communicate with Bluetooth. When the dog’s heart rate goes up – which can be when he’s excited or afraid – the camera snaps a picture! It’s not yet clear if the system will be available for sale to the general public
The lucky canine that got to try out this new concept and share his view of the world with us is Grizzler, the star of the video at the top of this article. As you can see from the video above and the pictures below Grizzler has really taken to his new responsibilities as the world’s first PhoDOGrapher. Everyone in the Clubit office can’t wait to see what amazing insights into his world he his going to share with us in the future.
What do you think of this combination of technology? Would you love to have your dog as a PhoDOGrapher and see the world through his eyes? Or is this just a cheap gimmick and a viral ad campaign? As always let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
