Vest turns a dog into a 4-legged Internet


A student at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design named Laura Boffi invented this idea for a vest to be worn by messenger dogs. The dog would be trained to find people (during a disaster, in the mountains, whatever) and sit in front of them so they can type their name and record a voice message ("Send brandy next time!"). A GPS device records the location. The dogs then return to where they started so rescuers get the message.

Hello,
thanks a lot for your interest in the Messenger Dog project. Please, notice that the project is not only mine, but we did it in a team of three people: Mary Huang, Li Bian and me!

I would be really grateful if you could specify these information in the post putting also the names of my collegues as the author.
Thanks a lot!
laura
