Shoo: The Deterrer of Pooping Dogs

Thirteen-year-old Noah De La Paz of California has invented a device to stop dogs from pooping on the lawn of his family’s house. It uses a camera and image-detection software. When a dog is identified, his device emits a high-pitched sound to encourage the dog to move on. Although still in the prototype stage, Noah hopes to eventually bring his invention to market.

I can see some potential problems with his invention. Such as that it doesn't seem to differentiate between pooping and non-pooping dogs. But even so, it sure would beat the currently most popular method of preventing unwanted poopers, which is to put up angry, threatening signs on your lawn.

Does this mean the old garden-hose-hooked-to-a-bug-zapper is no longer PC?

Virtual, for the whippersnappers, a high pitched sound won't chase them away. Maybe a Wayne Newton recording would do the trick.

Well, it sure would keep the damn dogs from the lawn and flowerbeds. This device has to be sold at all garden centers. Can he design one for squirrels too?
