Herding cats?


Found on the Environmental Studies site: Prototype for a GPS cat tracker.


where's the cat?A GPS receiver and a GSM modem with special software is incorporated into the Pet Tracker. Allows you easily and remotely monitoring the location of your cat via your cell phone/mobile phone anywhere in the world with suitable GSM coverage...

Simply call the telephone number of the Pet Tracker collar with your handy mobile phone/cell phone. The GPS receiver of the collar, estimates the position of your cat and sends the coordinates immediately as SMS (Short Message service) over the Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) directly on your mobile phone display. The accuracy of the positioning of your cat amounts to the average less than 15 meters.


They say they're "not selling this product" yet, but stay tuned...

Meantime you could just give the cat a camera, and let him take pictures as he wanders the neighborhood.

Thx: Sansserif for the tracker, and Sharon for Mr. Lee.
