Puppy Tweets! Let your pet tweet what he's doing with Matell's dog collar

Ever wonder what's your darling pup doing while home alone? Is he or she sleeping, running around or barking at the food on your table?

Find out what your dog is really up to with Mattel's Puppy Tweets. This fun electronic device attaches to your dog's collar and transmits tweets about her physical activity during the day. Barking, sleeping, and running all trigger humorous tweets corresponding to the activity, such as "I've got a new leash on life!" or "L'il help! Nose stuck in bird feeder!" This fun accessory is perfect for any adult dog owner who wants to know what Fido does while home alone.

Puppy Tweets works wirelessly with an electronic tag that communicates to the provided USB dongle when installed on a nearby computer. Tweets are generated based on the dog's physical behavior, such as running or napping, and audible behavior, like barking, and transmitted to a dog's Twitter account wirelessly via the USB dongle. The operating range varies depending on physical obstructions but may reach up to 100 feet between USB dongle and the tag.

The plastic tag randomly generates one of 500 canned tweets when it detects barking or movement. A signal is sent from the collar to a receiver connected a USB port on your computer, which sends the tweet to twitter.

Twitter Isn't Just for the Birds

Now you can get the 411 with text messages from Puppy Tweets! Whenever your dog moves, barks (or just naps), the tag knows it and sends a WiFi signal to your computer which then sends you a Tweet via Twitter. Simply set up a Twitter page for your dog and your Puppy Tweets tag starts generating Tweets. Puppy Tweets comes pre-loaded with over 500 phrases that put a humorous or insightful spin on your dog's daily activity. For example, a bark may generate a Tweet of: "I bark because I miss you. There I said it. Now hurry home." A quick run through the house could produce: "I finally caught that tail I've been chasing and...OOUUUCHH!" Invite your friends and family to follow your pet on Twitter and help your dog follow his or her favorite puppy pals or celebrities. Puppy Twitter lets you connect with your pet over the Internet. It's a great way to brighten your day 'cause a Tweet from your pooch is a virtual smooch! Puppy Tweets allows dogs to publicize their everyday activities on Twitter thanks to a sound and motion sensor.
