You'd think the prospect of clean grass would be enough to induce good behavior, but still, some dog owners neglect to pick up after their animals. A new concept gives people another incentive: Free WiFi in exchange for your dog's poop.
It's a good idea — throwing away dog poop equates to minutes of free public Internet access. A video below on behalf of Terra, a Mexican Internet firm, explains how it would work.
When people throw away poop, a "sophisticated system" translates the weight of the poop into free minutes of WiFi. The more poop, the more free Internet. As you can see in the video, the owners of Saint Bernards would be very happy. Owners of small dogs may be tempted to do some weird bowel-area massaging to get more free minutes.
Users would get WiFi signals via dog bone-shaped dongles inserted on the grass, in trees or in other spots near where people might congregate. Then, along with getting free WiFi, people can walk happily through the parks and avoid stepping in dog waste. You could conceivably throw away anything else heavy, too, but the incentive is for dog poop here, not your old stereo or whatever.
Check out the explanation below (in Spanish).
ROFL, this article is good and funny.
Now a person can receive compensation for giving a sh#t.
Snort, this is so funny.
Science sees no further than what it can sense, i.e. facts.
Religion sees beyond the senses, i.e. faith.
Open your mind and see!
That is awesome! I just got a note on my apartment from the management about dog poo and how there are people in the complex who don't pick up after their dogs. I have a bag full of grocery bags on my front door, one goes with me anywhere I take my dog, but because other people don't pick up I get threats of pet rent or pet removal. If people need incentive to pick up after their dogs they probably shouldn't have dogs but I still think this is a great idea. Maybe I should send this article to my apartment managers.
Haha! A very unique idea. But too bad people need a reason to pick up after their dog(s)
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.
What if I am poor, do not have a smart phone that needs internet or a laptop. What if me and my dog are starving. Perhaps it would be a good idea to steal this Electro-Receptacle and try to sell it for parts.
Of course when when steal the Electro-Receptacle first, dump the poo on the side walk and run.
See life in all its beautiful colors, and
from different perspectives too!
I give it maybe a week before somebody figures out you can dump rocks in it for WiFi.
