A few days ago we saw the first arrest filmed with Google Glass in America, and apparently not the only incident that has to do with law enforcement officers. A new report indicates that works with the Georgia Institute of Technology to develop a version of for dogs.

This version of Google Glass has the code name FIDO (Facilitating Interaction for with Occupations, for its acronym in English) and it is involved Thad Starner, technical director of Google Glass, who along with researchers are experimenting with various devices to see which one best suits the dog.

It is presumed that having one of these gadgets, the canine unit could have better control of what they see dogs so remote issue orders. The dogs will have a computerized harness could be trained to activate a sensor through a bite, it will send information to its owner. Activities such as detecting explosives or search for bodies would benefit from this device, but also seeks to integrate other as blind guide.

As with the human version , still no estimated release date, much less is known whether it is available for all types of dogs.
