'INUPATHY' uses a combination of insights and empathy in order to help pet owners decode dog emotions and get at the heart of what their furry friends may be thinking. The device take the form of a dog collar with LED lights, which relays the dog's feelings in real-time. This information is collected from a range of data, such as a dog's heartbeat, in order to figure out if a particular scenario is making them feel happy, relaxed or focused.

The smart dog collar can be used alongside an accompanying app, which is able to suggest games that a pet and an owner can play together in order to make the most of a dog's current emotional state.

Now that a working prototype for INUPATHY has been created, a crowdfunding campaign will soon follow.
