Ding Ding Smart Collar
Why be a dog whisperer when you can be Dr Dolittle instead? The fictional tale comes to life thanks to the newest update to Alibaba's Ding Ding (钉钉) app. Named the Ding Ding Smart Collar, the launch of this new device is offering solutions to pet owners in China.
Created by 72 scientists, this built-in neutron chip claims to revolutionise the way humans and animals interact and communicate. Through its multi-modal interaction technology, some features of the smart collar include real-time pet survival alerts, dog training tools via the use of special signals and, get this, a human-animal communicator that translates pet sounds and body language into human language. Of all the April Fools' Day gags, this is the one we wished was real the most.
