From the Forums: K9 Collar Project

2014 10 09 10 40 47

Chris “crafty184” shared a K9 Collar project in the Adafruit Forums:

We are creating a dog collar that “reads” the temperature of the dog (through the temp sensor near the skin) and lights up a neopixel that corresponds with the temp. We’ve sewn on blue (cool), white (less cool), rose pink (warm) and red (dangerous).

Our intent is to have it used on police K9’s to keep them safe in summer. It’s hot here in SC and each year a K9 or two dies due to overheating.

Just for fun, I’ve added a picture in case you’re curious. It’s a proof of concept (or MVP) right now, but it’s a neat project the kids are working on.
