Camera Records Life From A Dog’s Perspective Based On Pet’s Emotions
Ever wonder how your pets see the world? Concept camera takes photos from a dog's point of view.
In an attempt to solve for the emotional distress of losing a loved animal, the designer of this concept camera wanted to create a product that not only records a pet’s visual experiences, but also how the owner’s feelings are reflected through the animal.
By linking it to a dog’s heartbeat and body temperature – which the designer claims is influenced by the owner’s mood – the camera records images according to changes the animal’s feelings, potentially capturing the most important moments in its life. The camera would have an integrated USB feature for instant plug-and-play and a display showing the pet’s name.
While the ‘pet perspective’ camera is not a new idea, trying to tie it to emotions is. Creating a camera specifically aimed at helping people deal with the death of a pet is a specific but potentially helpful concept for those who are really attached to their animals. Having a small device bearing a dead pet’s name filled with their memories could be a consolation.
