GoPro created a harness which lets you capture the world from a dog's viewpoint

It’s only a matter of time before the cat version arrives.

CONSIDERING THAT GOPRO has the extreme sports market practically wrapped up, its next step is to capture the viewpoint of man’s best friend.

Called Fetch (see what they did there?), GoPro has created a harness that you can attach to your dog, either on their back for over the head shots or the chest for lower shots, and is designed to fit any dog ranging from 15 to 120 pounds.

Since the cameras are durable and designed for wear and tear, it will still work if your dog decides to run through mud, water or any other situation they might find themselves in.

GoPro devices usually cost between €200 to €400 depending on the version you get and the harness will cost €69.

Although if you ever wanted a different perspective to how your dog plays fetch, here’s a taster of what it would look like.
