Collar Creates Social Timelines Out Of Canine Activity
A Facebook-like newsfeed designed specially for canines and their daily activities.
San Francisco-based startup Whistle adds a quirky new feature to their dog activity-monitoring collar by allowing owners to compile day-to-day data on their pets into a canine social network.
The Whistle Activity Monitor was originally introduced as a wearable gear that can help owners get a better understanding on their pet’s daily habits, but its new feature will break down data in greater detail, offering a holistic picture of important events like naps, feedings and monthly check-ups.
Activities are easily documented with a single picture or a note, which show up on a continuous timeline much like the Facebook one. Only invited dog “owners” will have access to the daily log, but many can be registered should they want to take an active part.
Whistle can be linked to owners’ Facebook or Twitter, offering an easier way for people to share pictures or events of their dog’s day.
There is no word on where company is taking this product next, but from the looks of it, this tool is just a starting point for the Whistle network.
