Fancy Headset Translates Dog Thoughts

dog-thought-translator

Have you watched “Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs”? If you did, you might remember the Monkey Thought Translator. Aside from being hilarious, this completely fictitious device also seemed like something we’d all like to own. After all, who wouldn’t want a gadget that reads your pet’s mind? Well… with the “No More Woof”, you might just be able to do that. Currently in the early development stages, the device uses electroencephalogram sensors and a Raspberry Pi to read your dog’s thought patterns, and blare out through a speaker their associated meanings. The developers believe they’ve identified a few key processes, which translate into rudimentary expressions like “I’m hungry!”, “I need to pee!”, and “I’m tired!”.

They stress that this is a research product and that if you acquire one, you will be helping in its development and not enjoying a final, polished product. Considering it’ll cost you between $65 and $1,200 to get one (depending on the level of complexity and the number of thoughts it’s able to “read”), you may want to make sure you really care what pooch has to say before you pledge to their IndieGogo campaign.

And that’s of course assuming this whole thing isn’t a giant hoax.
