Ever wondered what kitty sees as she goes about her day? The Pet’s Eye View Camera captures life from her point of view, then you can download the pix and see for yourself. You never know, you just might have the makings of an award-winning film!
Wilson over at Gizmodo just reviewed this gadget with his cat Wade who is indoor-only and produced some rather mundane footage. Not really award-winning, but the review shows that the device does what it promises. Apparently you can set it to take photos every 1, 5 or 15 minutes and it will store up to 40 high-resolution photos. It has a rechargeable battery and comes with a USB cable for downloading, but you must provide the collar.
Wade and some of his best work.
Seattle filmmakers Michael and Deirdre Cross didn’t use the Pet’s Eye View Camera, instead they used Mr. Lee’s CatCam. Cooper leads a much more adventurous life than Wade, and for one day a week over the course of a year, he brought home some very nice images. Taking a photo every 2 minutes, Cooper captured 200 to 400 images a day. His adventures even landed him a spot on the new Animal Planet series, Cats 101. Read more about Cooper’s project here, and see more of his photos on Flickr.
Cooper and a glimpse of his adventures.
I’d love to see the view from the new cat shelves that I installed near the ceiling on the catio! I think I’ll have to get one of these and see who is willing to wear it. (I also think it would be fun to wear one of these around the office.)
Thanks to Moderncat readers Jason and Autumn for the tips. The Pet’s Eye View Camera is available at Amazon and you can still get it in time for Christmas!
