Cyber dog Sniff installed at Newcastle cinema

A computer generated projection of a dog has been installed in the window of an empty shop that forms part of Newcastle's Tyneside Cinema.

Sniff the dog uses video game technology to follow and respond to people walking past the window on Pilgrim Street in Newcastle city centre.

Sniff barks, jumps and wags his tail depending on how passers-by interact with him.
