Remote Controlled Dogs Make Fetch Like a Videogame

Even though dogs can perform lots of useful tasks, they generally require a human to be present in order to stay focused. That’s where the new GPS backpack developed by Auburn University comes in.

Basically, it uses vibration and tones to guide trained dogs in specific directions. This makes it easier to take advantage of a dog’s speed, stealth, agility and ability to fit into tight spaces—especially in dangerous situations.

Of course, a backpack with a giant receiver on it might nullify any of those advantages—but we assume that problem will be remedied in time.
