Pet's Eye View
A new camera records the world from your pet’s POV.
What pet parent hasn’t wondered about being able to see the universe through the eyes of their four-legged friends?
Well now, thanks to a new product on the market, seeing your pet’s point of view is finally possible.
The Pet’s Eye View Digital Camera, at a price of about $40 per camera, has recently hit the store shelves, and is also available online through such websites as amazon.com.
The camera hangs loosely from your pet’s collar, and can be set to take pictures automatically every 1, 5, or 15 minutes. At the end of the day, you’ll have a recap of your pet’s whereabouts — from his point of view.
Although test photos from the camera varied in focus, the product still allows owners to explore how their furry companions see the world. And from the amount of photos and videos available online, we’re all clearly fascinated with learning more about our pets’ perspective. Is it simple curiosity? Or are we constantly looking for deeper ways to connect with them?
For those of us who have looked at dogs or cats and wondered — if only I knew what they were thinking? — a pet’s eye view is one way to understand them better. We might not be able to speak their language, hear or smell the way they do — but at least we can start to see the world from their perspective.
Have you recorded photos or video from your pet’s point of view? If so, post your pics and videos! And if not, are you thinking of getting a pet’s-eye camera? Let us know below!
