PawsCam is basically a wearable GoPro for your pet that wirelessly uploads video to the cloud

PawsCam is a wireless camera that allows you to see what your dog is doing no matter where you are. Setup and registration is a simple process, and after you’re done you attach PawsCam to your dog’s collar. Motion and light sensors in the camera will detect when your dog is doing something interesting, record a short six second video clip, and upload it wirelessly to a free cloud service that you can view from any connected device.

PawsCam is small and light enough that most dogs won’t mind wearing it, but it might be a little uncomfortable or awkward for a dog that’s the size of a cat. The camera is water and dust resistant, and battery life lasts between 4 to 5 days on a single charge. The camera is only 480p, and can be a little shaky on a moving dog. But seeing what your dog is up to during the day is a nice escape when you’re at work. The whole experience helps you feel more connected to your dog.

Help NASA in its quest to learn more about our sun
Scientists have used the ESA/NASA Solar Orbiter’s Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUI) in a new mode of operation to record part of the Sun’s atmosphere that has been almost impossible to image until now. By covering the Sun’s bright disc with an ‘occulter’ inside the instrument, EUI can detect the million-times fainter ultraviolet light coming from the surrounding corona.
