Combining a love of Dogs and Technology

Sometimes you need something to just make you smile on a Monday morning. Well, I couldn't help a grin spreading across my face when I spotted this Kickstarter project online. If necessity is the mother of invention, then frivolity is the father.

A tech start up from New York City successfully raised the funds on Kickstarter for the Disco Dog LED vest, which allows the owner to keep their dog visible and safe at all times using the multicoloured LED's controlled via a smartphone app.

Not only does it help your dog to look great, but there is even a built in safety feature called 'Lost Dog Mode', which displays a message to display that the dog is lost automatically if it goes out of range from the smartphone. This alerts bystanders to help the lost pup get back to their owner. 

How Does It Work? 

I am a 60-year-old tech lover and self-confessed geek and football fanatic! When I am not playing with the latest gadget you will often find me watching my favourite TV shows including Game of Thrones, Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory.
