We love pet tech. Whether it's to help us locate our pets or translate their barks, technology to improve the lives of our pets is always something we are on the lookout for. We were excited when we spotted this retractable dog leash which combines several of the things we love here at Unplggd, green technology, LED lights, and of course pet tech.

It's quite common in our home to search for a flashlight while holding onto a leash attached to a very eager dog. Often we end up leaving our home without a light due to our dog's pressing needs. This leash solves the problem of the flashlight search by combining a light into the leash. What makes this leash unique is that it features a small generator inside that charges a set of rechargeable batteries which then power a set of LED lights. Hooray for an end to scrambling for a working flashlight!

This device is still in the concept phase, Fido Fashions say they are 6 months from completing a trade show prototype. For more information, check out Fido Fashions.

We would love to own this leash and hope it goes into production soon. What do you think? Would you purchase this leash?
