Oh no! But wait… Good thing you have your 3D printer.

Smart Collars: The Craziest Animal Technology To Date

Filed under: Tech TalkScience!Wildlife

Pet PI: Smart Collars Will Tell Us Everything About Animals

We want one!!

A smart collar (like a smart phone) is combination of global positioning technology and accelerometers for measuring an animal’s metabolic inner life in leaping, running or sleeping.

They were originally designed for pets, but researchers realized a smart collar can change the way we study animals.

"What you end up with is a diary for the animal, a 24-hour diary that says he spent this much time sleeping, and we know from the GPS where that was,”

said Terrie Williams, a professor of biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and one of three co-investigators on the project.

The device is way more than a GPS, it can a researcher the animal's oxygen intake, when it's hunting and what exactly it's killed.

"He ate something and we know what it was because the signatures we get for a deer kill vs. a rabbit kill are very different.”

OMG, that's nutz!

But hold up, if they're making smart collars for pets and wild animals do you think they can make on for boyfriends??
