‘PiP’ is a facial recognition app from Vancouver-based entrepreneur Philip Rooyakkers that recognizes your pet’s facial features so you can locate them when they’re lost.
The app records, classifies, and categorizes every feature of a dog’s or cat’s appearance. To use it, simply download the app, take a picture of your pet and enter its basic details. If the animal goes missing, you can send an alert to vet clinics, animal shelters, and fellow PiP users within a 15-mile radius. If someone finds an animal, they can upload a picture to initiate a matching process.
