As a dog owner, I sometimes wonder what my pooch is thinking and wonder what she’d say if she could talk. Well, DogStar is looking to take some of the guesswork out of the equation with TailTalk — the first emotion sensor for dogs that tracks and translates the movement of dogs’ tails.
This device, which is a small, flexible sensor that is worn around the tail like a collar, enables pet parents to understand what their dog is expressing. Plus, it even comes with a smartphone app, so you can monitor your dog’s emotions even if you’re not with them!
According to DogStar, “The tail is a key social cue for dogs, like the smile is for humans. But wagging isn’t just wagging, its complex; and, it includes emotional signals that human eye can’t recognize.”
DogStar TailTalk is currently funding on Indiegogo and has raised 41 percent of its $100,000 goal in just 15 days!
The following video introduces the wearable sensor and how it’ll work. If everything goes as planned, shipments of the DogStar TailTalk to start in June 2016 and will retail around $120.
