Dog’s poop= free internet.
In short this is what it comes down to.
Apparently in Mexico City, one of the world’s largest cities they have been having trouble in public park spaces, with fecal contamination of the canine kind. Owners have been walking through the parks and their dogs have been doing their bowel movements there in the park. The owners have not been obliging enough to pick up their dog’s mess.
Consequently this has been having an effect on the walking spaces. Some people find they have a bad smell following them, when finally they look at their shoe and have some part of someone else’s dogs past foodtime. The park sometimes can look like a visible mine field, with people having to dog the line of poo’s left behind.
The solution. Terra a Mexican company has come up with a solution. If the owner picks up there beloved dogs doo doo, a places it in the special bin provided, a wifi machine ways up the poop, and transfers that into free internet time. Obviously this is not going to be fair for a Chihuahua owner, but great for an owner of a Great Dane. The weight of the poo transfers into free internet time. And voila, happy surfing for the internet users.
Walking through the park trying to avoid every dog poo that comes in your way is an almost impossible task, but it wouldn’t be a problem if owners would just clean up after their pets. So Internet portal Terra has teamed up with ad agency DDB to create something that would motivate people to actually pick up their dogs turds. After some brainstorming, they came up with Poo Wifi, a machine that offers a free wifi connection in exchange for dog poo. So after they’ve picked up the droppings, people can drop the bags in a special box on top of the machine, after which the machine offers a number of minutes of free wifi, depending on the weight of the poo. Obviously, large dog owners will get more free wifi, which makes sense since their dogs’ droppings are the messiest.
