SNIF social networks for dog owning shut-ins

SNIF collar system

Maybe it's just us, but it appears when walking your dog around the streets of Manhattan, all you do is meet other dogs (and, of course, their people). But if you're like the boys at MIT's Physical Language Workstop (uh… ?), obsessively keeping track of every single interaction your dog makes with others of its kind should be in the cards—so long as they're wear SNIF collars, which wirelessly record canine social network IDs of other poochies in close range, you'll never again lose track of which dog's butt Rover thinks smells the best (or much in the same vein, which dog's owner you meant to flirt with but didn't get the chance).
