I've not used it myself -- I purchased it as a gift for a forthcoming family holiday -- but it weighs in at just over 4 oz so I would think that even a little dog wouldn't notice it hanging from the collar (look how big / heavy are the bones / sticks that a dog can carry).

Can you share with us some pics that have been taken :-)? Is it cumbersome to the dog?

I was thinking that it was a pity it couldn't automatically switch to a night-vision mode -- one of out cats (Rocket) likes to wander around in the storm drains -- I'd love to see images showing what it's like down there... Thinking about it -- you could also hand it on a kid so you could get a kids-eye view of the world as it wanders under tables and suchlike...

Hi Dave -- it just hangs from the collar -- I ordered it yesterday so it's currently on its way to me -- but it won't go on Henri's collar because it's intended as a gift for the family party. If you want to see the sort of image you get, bounce over to the ThinkGeek site (the link just above the image in this article). If you want to see Henri -- did you ever see the "Two Stupid Dogs" video I posted on YouTube? (http://bit.ly/dOJAUu)

Max - seems to me that if you strapped it onto the collar you'd get shots of either the sky or the floor? (Or maybe a pet version of what he's walking past, like google street view.... (Poodle street view?? Sorry....) Or does it just hang from the collar?? Do you have a pic of it on Henri for us??

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
