As the name suggests, it measures the pooch’s heart rate to grab snaps when they’re most excited. That could mean you get lots of lovely pictures of steak, other cute dogs and cool toys or just a cavalcade of buttholes.
The rig is made up of two parts – a heart monitoring band and case for the camera – with the ability to tweak the heart rate level that triggers the shutter.
While it’s unlikely to become a product you can actually buy, I really like Grizzler, who becomes Nikon’s ‘phoDOGrapher’ in the clip.
