A group of scientist-inventors in Scandinavia say they are in the process of developing a device that translates canine thoughts into human language. The headset, called No More Woof, is purported to analyze dogs' "thought patterns" and playback their meaning in English, via a loudspeaker.
From the group's project page:
The technology used in No More Woof is the result of combining the latest technologies in three different tech-areas, EEG-sensoring, Micro Computing and special BCI software. During the last decade huge discoveries have been made to map out the human brain's functions. But never before has anyone made a serious attempt to apply this groundbreaking technology on man's best friend.
No More Woof's inventors say that they are in the early stages of development, but stress that this the endeavor is a serious one with real potential.
"Right now we are only scraping the surface of possibilities; the project is only in its cradle. And to be completely honest, the first version will be quite rudimentary."
