Much like the scientists who attach tracking devices to various land and sea animals to find out migratory patterns, now you can do the same to your household pet with an attached camera. Who knows? maybe we can catch them plotting to take over the world.

Earlier, Jürgen Perthold had devised a small camera that he attached to his cat, Mr. Lee, which took pictures in set intervals, then posted the pics on the his website

The pics are an interesting snapshot of the daily random life of his cat. Its amusing to try to surmise what exactly was going though the cats head as he traversed his daily meandering path.

Either through Jurgen’s DIY camera, or wait for the Pet Eye Digital Camera, technology can provide you with a daily insight of your pets life through their viewpoint.

I would attach one to my dogs, but all it would show is my patio ceiling, as thats the view they have most of the day as they nap. (I know, because I had setup a webcam to watch my dogs once, and that must have been the most boring webcam in the world)
