Last year, Sony tried to take a chunk out of the GoPro-style wearable camera market with its own Action Cam, but its latest accessory could reach beyond the typical audience of extreme sports fanatics — the company has announced a dog-mounted camera bracket designed to give you footage from a pet’s-eye view. The AKA-DM1’s harness is adjustable, but is only designed for dogs over 15 kilograms (33 pounds) with a belly circumference of between 50 to 80 centimeters.
It’s out on April 26th for ¥5,250 (about $54), with no word yet on a release elsewhere. Given the high popularity of canine fashion in Japan, however, we wouldn’t be altogether surprised if Sony decided to keep this particular product in its homeland.
