The Heartography Camera

The Heartograpy camera from Nikon lets dogs takes photos of what excites them. The camera fits inside a case that the dog wears around its neck. A sensor on the camera case can tell when the dog’s heartbeart rises, triggering the camera to snap a picture! When Nikon tested the camera on a dog named Grizzler, they found out he liked bright colors and other dogs!

No More Woof

The No More Woof headset from dogs reads the dog’s mind to let you know what its thinking. Actually, the headset reads the dog’s brainwaves, and can tell which brainwave patterns mean the dog is hungry, tired or excited. After it reads the brainwaves, the headset translates the wave pattern into words. You can check out a video about the No More Woof here!
