Volkswagen Works Out a Way to Get Dogs to Walk Themselves
A connected device concept will let your pooch go for a stroll, alone
A Volkswagen campaign shows a vision of the Connected Dog: a GPS and live cam-enabled cap that will allow your dog to go on a walk without you tagging along.
A video to show off the concept was created by creative agency ACHTUNG!, with the help of Dutch dog whisperer, Martin Gaus.
Erik Mulder, project manager of the Volkswagen app, begins by showing off the app that will allow you to control your car. The logical next step? Apparently, doing the same thing for your pooch.
A handsome Border Collie wears the bright blue cap and goes off exploring the city: a stop at the butcher shop, lapping up a bowl of milk at an outdoor cafe, even playing fetch with himself, using a tennis ball machine. “The dog is in charge, and he has an incredible life,” the ecstatic Gaus explains.
