It's raining cat and dog gadgets! Our pets are catching up to us when it comes to technology. From GPS tracking devices to social media, cats and dogs are able to get their paws on almost everything we can. Here are six gadgets and technologies just for pets.

 

 

Microchip

 

 

Microchips work through the use of RFID, or Radio Frequency IDentification. The chips include an antenna and signal transmitter that can communicate with RFID readers, which most vets and shelters now have. This technology makes reuniting lost owners much easier and faster. In the future, RFID tags will most likely be able to do much more than store an ID number. For example, a vet will be able to scan the pet and instantly be able to see medical history, allergies, and behavior information.

                                                              

VUE personal video network

 

 

Here is a very fun and functional device, granted more so for you than your pet. Avaak's new Vue, a multi camera wireless video system. Basically, multiple cameras can be set up to communicate with one central base unit so pictures or video can be viewed and recorded from multiple angles and room wirelessly. Once the unit collects the video, it can be viewed remotely from any computer or iPhone. 

 

Spotlight GPS

 

 

Read more about this product here, Spotlight GPS Pet Locator. Here is a quick overview. The Spotlight GPS is a collar attachment that has a GPS tracking device in it. The animal wearing the collar can be tracked and the owner can be alerted by phone or email when the pet has moved outside of predetermined boundaries. The owner can then be led to the dog using GPS location technology.

 

Sony Camera with Pet smart mode DSC CX7 

Focus on moving animals, reduce red possessed-looking eyes, and get a clear action shot with the latest camera to offer a pet smart mode. Although Sony was not the first in this market, it is still a good move on their part. The Fuji FinePix Z700EXR was reportedly the first camera with a built-in pet mode as described in the article The Fuji Camera That Can Detect A Pet's Face.

 

iRobot Rumba with pet fur remover

 

This is one vacuum that even the dog can work. With the push of one button (after setup), the whole room will be cleaned, pet fur and all, while the two of you are out for a walk or at the park.

Among all these Hi-fi gadjets which could probably help us out, while dealing with our pets Fur remover had got my intense excitement and I'm now looking out to get a piece for myself so that I can rip off the huge fur grown over my dog. Anyhow I'm gonna order it through amazon or ebay and would probably wirte a review of the product on essaytigers website and bring it up to some of the famous social networking platforms, so that a lot of pet owners like me could be aware of the product. Thanks for the share.

Thank you for the comment! Keeping an eye on pets is difficult when they are not right next to us. Webcams are great, but this VUE system does have great advantages. It would also work for children. After doing a quick search online, I found this system to be a bit expensive, but I'm sure there are cheaper alternatives.

That video system thing looks quite nifty. When we are on a weekend vacation, I set up my webcam on my computer (which means dragging the computer into the living room and hooking it up, quite annoying) and then remotely view it via MSN. Its the cheapest way I could find to keep a watch on Kiara and keep her safe at the same time since if something happened, I could easily call my neighbor and have her come help.
