The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery has set up a project on crowd funding site Indiegogo for No More Woof – a device that can translate animal thoughts into human language.
Powered by a Raspberry Pi mini PC, the small gadget uses EEG to analyse animal thought patterns and spell them out in human language using a loudspeaker.
Patterns found so far include ‘I’m tired’, ‘I’m hungry’ and ‘Who are you?’
At the moment the device can translate into English, but the inventors are planning to introduce Mandarin, French and Spanish.
Check out the No More Woof video below, which goes some way to explaining how the technology works and how charming your dog will look with the headset on:
