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!)
