introducing the MESSENGER DOG!

messenger dog is a digital messaging system for use in disaster relief efforts developed by mary huang,
laura boffi and li bian. the informal system aims to connect people who may have been displaced during
a crisis such as an earthquake. messenger dog enables people to record video messages to loved ones and
send them through the dog wearing the device. messages are geo-tagged and time logged so that people
can track where messages originated from, hopefully reuniting loved ones. the dogs are deployed from
a single point such as a refugee camp and sent out with the device on their back. the dogs return to the
point of origin at the end of the day, where any recorded video can be downloaded for users to watch.

The Dog-O-Mat – Automatic Dog Washing Vending Machine

yup, this is real. a dog washing-machine… That’s the Dog-O-Matic, a mini car-wash that transforms pets from filthy to fluffy in half an hour. By Frenchman Romain Jarry, who insists this device is no cruel, and success with the Dog-O-Matic in his home town of St Max(near Nancy). He plans to introduce it to U.K. next year.
Mr Jarry said: ‘It doesn’t take long to wash the dog – usually a few minutes. The longest part is the drying. The dogs don’t seem to get bored. They just sit there and they come out clean.’
In the vending machine, the owner can select the required wash cycle and dog sizemachine. It costs the equivalent of £13 to wash a small dog, £22 for medium size, rising to £31 for the largest customers.
