There’s A new device that allows dogs to start video calls with their owners. a researcher has created the ‘DogPhone’, which enables owners to remotely keep in touch with their pets. DogPhone works by allowing a pet to pick up and shake a specific toy. When the toy senses movement, a video call is initiated through a laptop. By shaking the toy the dog is ‘calling’ its human. The human owner can also call their pet, with the animal using the same system to answer, by shaking the toy.
