English firearms dogs (the Green Beret of the K-9 unit over there, it seems) are now being harnessed with a wireless camera system called Fido (how original—were B.A.R.K. and FetchCam taken by something else?). The system wirelessly transmits audio and video (with an infrared option) to Policemen outside during dangerous search operations where the highly trained cute little puppers are considered, erm, more expendable than a person. We'd be really into an audio output option in their next version though, for remotely issuing commands to the dogs, or better yet, for yelling at the perps. Good boy, sit!
