Floating Pet Collar keeps Fido safe

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2008

Floating Pet Collar keeps Fido safeThe Float-a-Pet collar is a good idea. For one thing it keeps your pet safe, for another it’s fun to see pet heads floating down Main Street during a flood. Win/win. It’s an inflating floating emergency collar with a flashing light so you can locate your pet even in the dark.

Sure, dogs can swim, but that doesn’t mean they don’t get tired, just like us. It may not be such a great idea that the flashing light is powered by solar. Probably not the best way to power something that is made for emergency nighttime situations. But with this thing, at least your pet has a chance to become one of many floating heads in a flood situation.

Fire-Breathing robo dog is ready for the apocalypseThe dudes at the Mutoid Waste Company just need 3 more of these beasts, then they can roam the future wastelands as the Four Robo-dog-men of the Apocalypse, spreading fire and carnage wherever they ride and fulfilling prophecies.

For now they have one. These guys love them some scrap metal and Larry is their latest creation to crawl out of the gates of the workshop and onto the streets of London, breathing fire with each step forward. See the bot in action below.

Vladimir Putin puts a satellite collar on his dog

Vladimir Putin puts a satellite collar on his dogAbout a year ago, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin announced that he would one day like to be able to pinpoint the location of his black Labrador, Koni, at any time using a Russian satellite navigation system known as GLONASS.

Yesterday, he did it. Mr. Putin procured a satellite collar that will allow him to track her, no matter where she is in Russia. (This dog must get around) According to Putin, “She’s wagging her tail, she likes it.” The system will be fully working for Russian territory by the end of this year.

Fugliest MP3 player ever is a real dog

Fugliest MP3 player ever is a real dogWhen it comes to MP3 design, you’re generally more concerned with things like what features it has, or whether it’s slim enough and has enough memory. With this one you’re concerned that it’s fugly little face might come alive and kill you quickly. This is the CJ7 Dog Doll MP3 Player with Built-in Speakers and yes, it seems like the crack pipe was passed around liberally at the design meeting that day.

It looks like a flower humped a tiny dog and the two mutated together. It has 1GB of internal memory, built in speaker and charges through the USB port, which is in the dog’s butt. The headphone jack is in the front. It’s $18.67 worth of wtf.

Four-Legged Wetsuits make pets hate you

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on May 1st, 2008

Four-Legged Wetsuits make pets hate youCats don’t like water, but dogs aren’t too thrilled with it either. That’s why someone invented this wet suit for dogs. Small ones, like Chihuahas. It’s for when you want to force your dog in the water and make it look like an idiot at the same time. The outfit comes complete with flippers, goggles and a tank. I can easily see Paris Hilton dressing up Tinkerbell in this gear.

The doggy wet suit was featured as part of a Philippine fashion show and was worn by Mondex, the scuba dog. I don’t think they’ve actually tested it on dogs yet, but I could be wrong. If I know humans, one will be available very soon for the rich.

Spoil your pet with the Luxury Pet House

Spoil your pet with the Luxury Pet HouseIf you’re looking for new and better ways to spoil your pet, you might want to look into the Luxury Pet House. Sure, it looks like a toaster oven, but don’t worry, nobody is going to make toast out of your little furry friend. Apparently it’s more about keeping fluffy comfortable and happy in his/her own little environment. Paris Hilton would love this thing for her weird little animals.

The Luxury Pet House offers PC-managed controls, temperature and humidity limits, infrared radiation and carbon heating walls, antibiotic air, solenoid valve “medical treatment,” and carbon filter-based deodorizing. I’m guessing that the only thing it doesn’t have is an option for cryogenic freezing.

Potty Training Brick makes your dog pee

Potty Training Brick makes your dog pee
Needless to say, we here at the Brick are none too happy about this product. We’re not amused at all. There are some lines you simply don’t cross. To quote the late Jim Croce, “You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind, you don’t pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger and you don’t mess around with Jim.” We’re adding, “You don’t pee on the Brick.”

This strange little “brick” is supposed to make it easy to train your dog to pee. There isn’t much information, but the Potty Training Brick is supposed to have a unique scent that makes dogs want to pee on it. It’s $20. You don’t piss on the brick! That’s all we have to say.

HPI G-Dog is next generation of robotic dogs
Man, John and Sarah Connor’s job just keeps getting harder. This is what our robot overlords will use to track us down and tear our legs off so they can then stand over us laughing before they kill us by pulling our hearts out.

The HPI robotic G-Dog is powered by 7.2 volt nickel hydrogen batteries, he’s equipped with three-axis acceleration sensors and stands at 7.5 inches. The G-Dog comes as a kit for robot enthusiasts, so you’ll have to build him. He should go on sale in July, no price has been announced yet.
