Helicopter pet-parents can soon get super-connected with Scout 5000

Scout 5000 smart collar for dogs

A new collar in the works that streams your dog's day on video, unveiled by Motorola licensee Binatone at last week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is set to be available by mid-year.

Considered a smartphone for dogs, it not only lets owners see what their dogs are seeing as they play and rest, it offers GPS tracking to make sure Fido never goes missing.

By connecting on the corresponding app called Hubble Connected, they can see their dog's world in real time and record snitches of it, too.

It's also equipped with a microphone that allows owners to coo, cluck and engage in coddling chatter with their dogs from the workplace or elsewhere.

Called the Scout 5000 collar, it will become available in June for $199, the company told Relaxnews.

If you just can't wait that long to hover over Fido from afar, the Petcube camera is available now for $199.

Petcube is a small, desktop camera whose 138-degree wide-angle gives you an actual image of the dog and -- like Scout 5000 -- it offers a microphone by means of which owners can communicate vocally.

We'll let you know when it's possible to cuddle Fido in virtual reality.
