In Boston, this company is testing a dog tag that can interact with another dog's tags, trading basic information. It's meant to be a social networking tool for owners. You go out, spy someone you think is interesting, let your dogs get close enough to read each other's tags, and whammo, true love. And you already know your dogs like each other. :rolleyes:



Snif Labs


about us


SNIF Labs was conceived of by graduate students working at the MIT Media Laboratory. The initial idea came from a course project prepared for Professor Hiroshi Ishii. The goal at that time was to create a physical interface to a social networking software system.


The team observed that dog walking, especially in urban areas, provided a safe avenue for casual social interaction between dog owners. Initial prototypes for the SNIF® Tag were attempts to combine the natural interactions of dog walkers with powerful social networking tools.


The product and its goals have changed considerably over time, but its origins are significant. We would like to acknowledge and thank Professor Ishii for sharing his expertise and inspiring us to proceed with this work.
