Pet-fi lets your pet help you get connected online

Let’s face it, some of our pets are absolutely useless. When was the last time they actually earned their keep around the house? Pet-Fi (which sounds suspiciously like a joke and might just be one) is apparently the ‘world’s first pet-powered mobile broadband solution’ that puts your pet’s, er, roaming capabilities to good use. All you have to do is clip on the Pet-Fi dongle to its collar, and you can enjoy wireless access to your smart devices within 30 metres of your pet. Plus it’s sustainable — it runs on kinetic energy generated by your pet’s movement. (PS – we know it’s an April Fool’s gag, but we wish someone would actually come up with it!)
