SNIF, or Social Networking in Fur
, is a project from John Maeda's Physical Language Workshop at the MIT Media Lab. The idea is built on the age old notion of petworking
-- meeting people through your pets. In their own words: "SNIF presents a hardware/software architecture that aims to capture pet social networks and other pet-related information as pets and their owners explore their communities."
Unfortunately, Otis and Logan are a bit leash aggressive so I don't think this is something that would help our social lives very much. But it's a fascinating concept none the less. Check out a scenario after the jump.
