Your Dog Can Tweet…Kinda

Mattel is releasing a toy called Puppy Tweets that will randomly tweet one of 500 pre-programmed messages to Twitter.  It’s a collar with a motion & sound sensor, so when your dog gets up from a nap or barks at the mailman, the collar will send a tweet along the lines of “I bark because I miss you. There, I said it. Now hurry home.”  At $29.99, I’m going to wait until they can make one like the collar on Dug in the movie Up(via Samuel Axon at Mashable)

  1. This reminds me of April Fools day in 1999. I was so excited because NPR reported about a collar that translated what dog’s are saying. I called Paul & he asked me, “What day is it?”

    I’m enjoying your blog!

  2. “But, it’s a talking *dog*!” love that kid.

    why does Mattel’s puppy look like an albino rabbit?
