Read Your Dog's Mind
It almost seems like science fiction, but a Scandinavian company called The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery has created a device called No More Woof, which translates your dog's thoughts and verbalizes them into human language. Essentially, it's Google Translate for your pup.
The way these "thoughts" are recorded is with an Electroencephalogram (EEG) sensor, which measures the voltage fluctuations from ionic current within the dog's brain. Small EEG censors are placed within a plastic headset. As the electrical signals in the the dog's brain are recorded, patterns are sought out. These patterns are then analyzed, recorded, and translated into phrases like "This is splendid!" Or "leave me alone" and "who are you?" Even "night-time!"
These absolutely crazy Nords are looking to eventually create a way for humans to talk back to their animals — which could finally put an end to all the one-sided conversations you have with your dog after a hard day. This whole thing seems vaguely familiar...
