New York, NY, January 24, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- WikiTrend.org, the leading consumer trends website, is seeing a new trend in pet technology. There is a plethora of technology designed for humans that is being reworked for animal use. It’s a popular trend right now– redeveloping technology for animals almost as soon as it becomes available for human consumption.
Brainwave reading devices are a trend in humans. These devices tap in to brain activity to allow for measurement and control. Now, this same idea is being used on pets. For example, developers are using a brainwave reading device to understand dog thought process, allowing an owner to understand why a dog is barking.
Wearable technology is also a popular trend in the pet community. For humans, these devices connect to the internet and often give feedback on body rhythms and fitness performance. For dogs, monitors are being developed to give the owner insights into how much exercise should be given on a daily basis. Another device allows owners to train their pet with a smart device, giving the dog authoritative vibrations with the push of a button.
Technology is being used in the wild as well. Sharks in Australia have been fitted with sensors that send automatic tweets any time the predators get too close to shore.
“These trends reflect the importance our society has placed on animals,” a WikiTrend.org spokesperson says. “Developers have recognized that if a product will sell for humans, it will probably be useful for animals as well.”
