If A Dog Could Blog What Would He Tell You?
CONCEPT | RASPBERRY PI | VIDEO
Dog owners, including myself, are utterly fascinated by their animal friends, creating personalities for them, putting clothes on them and attempting to track what their pets are doing when they are gone. My dog has been lucky enough to be raised around five little girls. So he has more than one person that tries to do all of those things. Ever since I moved away for Brandcenter every single conversation with the five started with "How is Borealis?", "I miss Borealis." or "What is Borealis doing right now?"
Chronicles of Borealis the Dog was my attempt at allowing them to track his adventures remotely and share them with their friends.
This is the result of my labors:
Months earlier I used a GoPro with the specialized dog harness to get some footage from our trecks in the woods. I learned then, that that system was highly unreliable; the harness did not fit well on his body, the footage was shakky when he run and the camera got bent back when he was walking through bushes.
To finish it off, I installed the MJPG Streamer and NGROK on the Raspberry Pi to run the programs. I have written both of them into start up mode, so that I would not need to use a Monitor to get the programs going, but simply power up the Pi. This project won a First Time Autor Award on Instructables. Feel free to see the instructions I shared there.
