Sony Introduces Camera Mount For Dogs

Are you thinking of seeing through the eyes of your pet dog especially when you are at work? Then, here's an action camera mount announced by Sony. The AKA-DM1, a dog harness from Sony Japan is a camera mount that allows you to fix a camera on the dog's girth. However, this AKA-DM1's harness is adjustable, it has limitation too i.e. it will be suitable only for dogs weighing 15 kilograms and having a belly circumference of between 50 to 80 centimeters. As far its availability and pricing is concerned, the AKA-DM1 is priced at $54 and will be available on 26th of April in Japan (no words for the release in other regions). Well, I am thinking why would anyone purchase this camera mount to keep an eye on their dog. Tracking such an animal will be just a wastage of time and headache, but as the scientist have created this harness, they surely have thought of some special use of it. Stay tuned for more updates.
