Doggie Styles: Gadgets and Gizmos for Fido


Remember the Doggie Cam? I guess we weren't the only people loving it. Wired Magazine has put together a Doggie Style: Cell Phones, Webcams and GPS for Hounds piece that makes me drool...just a little bit.

While I don't have a puppy and can't imagine I'd keep mine in the best designer gadgets if I did - the idea that so many pet gizmos exists is a real testament to geeky animal lovers. I can't decide if I love the Canine Camera or Puppy PDA more. It's a real trial in cuteness.

Here are some highlights in the study of gadgets designed by people that clearly don't have children or hobbies:

  • Canine Camera - A portable, durable camera from Takara Tomy can be hung from your dog's collar and operated by remote control. You can set a timer, triggering the camera to snap photos every few minutes and auto-upload to any Japanese cell phone.
  • Doggie Cell Phone - This voice-enabled, waterproof, GPS-enabled cell phone from Pets Mobility tracks your dog's location using GPS. It's also a two-way cell phone, with an auto-answer feature that puts your voice on speakerphone. You can talk to your pup and he can respond with a bark. The doggy phone has a "call home" button so if anyone finds him, they can use the phone to contact you.
  • Pooch PDA - The PetMaster lets you keep your dog's busy schedule in one paw-shaped device. Keep tabs on Spot's vet appointments and play dates, or check a database of animal hospitals and dog-friendly motels across the United States.
