Ever wonder what it would be like if we introduced our tech apps to the animal world? Apps like Fitbit, Meetup, Happn etc. That’s kind of exactly what the tech company Wondermento did when they introduced The WonderWoof: a bow tie device that connects to your dog’s collar and, via a bluetooth connection and an app, allows you to track their activity.
