A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
Boy, if we only knew what dogs went through.
Our canine compadres always seem to get the short end of the bone in life, so that’s why we’re inventing a Photojojo first: The Doggie-Cam.
By sticking a camera on our four-legged friend Molly, we’ll finally see the world as she sees it, and maybe then we’ll be able to sympathize. No more doggie disrespect!
Who knows, after this we might just start lobbying for dogs’ rights. Dogs deserve to vote, we think. And where’s all the doggie mayors? Well, we’ll change that. The 2008 presidential elections? We’re talkin’ third-party dog candidate, baby. Before you know it, dogs will be in positions of power everywhere — dogs could rule the world!
Whoa, Nelly. So we might not go that far. But sometimes, we think it’s worth it to look at life from the underdog’s point-of-view, and with the Doggie-Cam, now we can.
p.s. Help us out, Digg this tutorial!
(Thanks to reader Wayne Pyle for pointing us to what we should admit is the first doggie cam, and hooking us on this idea.)
HOW TO MAKE THE DOGGIE-CAM
We’re shocking ourselves, we know, but the Doggie-Cam may be Photojojo’s simplest tutorial yet. Three easy-peasy, uncomplicated steps:
Well let’s see it!
After copious amounts of testing (not really) and years of strenuous development effort (not at all), we’re pleased to bring you the very first glimpses from the Photojojo Doggie-Cam:
(Disclaimer: Nausea and other dizzy-ish side-effects may occur by watching. Hey, it’s the very first, raw footage, folks! You’re watching history-in-the-making!)
Extra Tips & Ideas
The thing with the Doggie-Cam is, you know, it depends on the dog. Of course you could bribe your dog with the promise of Scooby Snacks, but if you don’t feel like Fido’s cooperating, then maybe you should drop it. (And please, whatever you do, don’t try doing the Doggie-Cam this way.)
That said, here’s a few extra tips & ideas that might help out:
(We should probably note that you’re doing this at your own risk â€“ pooches and cameras don’t always go well together, although in most circumstances we think the worst that could happen is for your camera to fall on the ground.)
There you have it, friends! Go out and, dog-willing, try it! Once you’re back, show off your results on Photojojo Woof-e-Vision (i.e. the forum). Also let us know how the Photojojo Doggie-Cam worked for you â€“ any setbacks, suggestions, tips?
