Robo-Dog To Monitor Your Calorie Intake
Recent Research Study published in New Scientists reports the results of the study investigated by Scientists from United States. The study reports the results of a robot dog, which has been designed to monitor your daily food intake and pleads with you to curb over indulgence.

The canine coach, is a modified version of Sony's Aibo, The new robo-dog is programmed to exhibit four different behaviors. If you have stuck to your daily calories, the dog will jump up and down, robo-dog will wag it is tail, play cheerful music and flash brightly colored lights that stud its 50 cm high body. But if you have taken high fat foods like potato chips or cheese cake, it will move ponderously and play sorrowful music.

The pooch should get its information from a pedometer, bathroom scales and personal digital assistant on which the owner is supposed to record his or her food intake. The data from these devices are sent to the dog by means of Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
