It all started as a joke - but now it seems that everywhere I look I find things about pets and mobile phones. The picture is from PetsMobility who have a new mobile phone for animals called the PetsCell. You attach it to one of their paws and it automatically answers when you call them up (because obviously the idea of a dogs being able to answer phones themselves is crazy). They do offer an optional GPS just in case you want to keep track of your pet. Read all about it here.
Over on textually.org there’s a link to the Odd things from Japan blog (mmmm bookmark!) where they have this wonderful Pet Phone remote food dispenser! You can feed and talk to your pet while you’re on the move, maintaining that feeling of proximity whilst doing something else. Proof that mobile technology changes relationships….. with pets.
This is just fantastic... but I do want to phone and talk to Minnie and Sylvester as well as dispense their food. I have been known to phone and leave a message that will play for them. They are my babies and I love them.
