Thailand is the home of a new “smart vest” that could turn stray dogs into personal guardians. Equipped with a hidden video camera, vest sensors transmit live streaming videos when the dog barks, showing what it sees via a smartphone app.

Pakornkrit Khantaprap, on the creative team at Samsung, says, “It’ll make people feel that stray dogs can become night-watches for communities.”

More tests are needed before the vest can be introduced into additional communities for trial runs.
