The Motorola Scout 5000 Lets You Track Your Dog Like The Canine NSA

by Stirling Matheson

What’s your dog’s name? “Viktor Erstmann von Drakenhoff IV?” That’s a bit much… oh, you call him “Vicky” for short. Still weird, but whatever. Has Vicky ever escaped from your yard? Have you ever wanted to spy on him from the comfort of your computer? Have you ever wanted to know how many steps he’s taking per day? Or perhaps you just want text message alerts when he tries to flee from your overbearing presence?

If you answered yes to all of those questions, Motorola is making a device that you will love. The Scout 5000 affixes firmly around your dog’s neck (always a favorite strategy for evil overlords), and uses its integral GPS, Wi-Fi, and 3G cellular connections to let the master check where the dog is, send alerts when said dog leaves his “virtual fence,” stream live, wide-angle video from a camera, let you know when Vicky is barking, send and receive audio (so you can issue your directives), and act as a pedometer, because why the hell not.

The Scout 5000 will cost $200 when it goes on sale in June.
