What the dog sees

I've always had this idea of mounting a video camera on Lou's head, to see what life looks like from the POV of a sheepdog.  Despite Lou having one of the largest heads in border collie history, the camera's never been able to stay mounted.  Until now.  May I present ...

The Looxcie.
Now this, combined with a little bit of elastic headband stuff, WILL stay on the dog's head.

The result (neither of these videos should be watched by anyone prone to motion sickness!):

And since that was so much fun, I wondered what agility would look like from the dog's POV.  Again, if you get motion sick, do not click this!

Great videos! Lou is so cool, it's fun to ride along with him. And Rex is one wild ride, I look forward to seeing more.

Wow! A fisheye lens would be a great add-on, but you can definitely tell when his flanks are square. Cool vid! Thanks.
