Perhaps some day we will be able to have a meaningful conversation over the phone with our dogs, as technology progresses in impressive leaps. Until that happens, we can be satisfied with the ability of our dogs to still call us on their own.
The device we are talking about is a ball that has an embedded sensor. Once the ball starts rolling, there is a signal that is sent to the computer which automatically starts a video conference call, accompanying by the ring tone. In time, your dog should be able to learn this simple routine and call you whenever they feel like it.
- One of the issues that comes with the DogPhone is that it can cause issues for humans in meetings.
- The DogPhone allows the owner to choose if they want to answer the call or when they want to hang up the call.
- The dog has to move the ball in order to pick up the phone, so they get a choice in the matter.
“The device – nicknamed the DogPhone – is a soft ball that, when moved, sends a signal to a laptop that launches a video call, and the sound of a ringing telephone.”
