It is not just humans who are getting wearables at CES, a new smart collar for dogs has been unveiled so owners and pets can stay connected.

The Scout5000 is from Motorola and video streaming developer Hubble and allows owners to track the physical health of their pet, while a built-in camera allows them to see the world through their dog’s eyes for the first time.

There is also GPS so you can track their location should they ever decide on a Homeward Bound-style adventure.

And there is even a microphone so you can talk to your pet remotely too.

The collar is essentially a “smartphone for your dog” as it uses 3G in order to send information to your own smartphone to monitor your pet.

It comesd with a year of 3G service as part of the 199 US dollar (£131) price tag.
