With integrated Wi-Fi, various slo-mo modes and a waterproof casing, the Sony Action Cam is a worthy opponent to the GoPro. What's clearly lacking, however, is a harness allowing owners to mount the Action Cam to their dogs. Until now.

The AKA-DM1 is an Action Cam accessory for discerning dog owners. It's a harness which hooks over and around the dog's torso, with a mount for the Action Cam on top – thus dog owners will be able to shoot footage from their pooch's perspective.

The harness is adjustable, but only suitable for dogs who weigh more than 15 kg (33 pounds) and have a belly circumference of between 50 and 80 cm (20 to 31 inches).

The AKA-DM1 is being launched on April 26 in Japan and is priced at ¥5,250. There's no word yet on availability in other regions, so Japanese dogs look set to be the only extreme canines for the time being.
