What the heck is wearable tech? Part 3: Train your pet using wearables

Hey, it’s Debra again. You don’t want to be THAT neighbour, whose dog has a full-on bark-appaloosa concert every time the wind blows.The wonderful scientists, and general smarty-pants, over at Motorola have now created the MOTOPET 200.

Since I’m not a crazy person, I said, “YES PLEASE!” and then I got to meet the MUSE. Read about this fun new way to get your mind to quiet down.
