Wow, how times have changed!
"Bark bark bark-bark!" = "We think this is a great idea!" as translated from dog thoughts.
Scientists in Scandinavia are working on technology that would use a headset to allow dogs to communicate their thoughts!
So get ready to hear a lot of banter about squirrels, going for walks, and, you guessed it, more squirrels!
The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery is currently working on No More Woof, a technology that aspires to differentiate various doggy thoughts and then vocalize them in short sentences through a microphone.
Now, whenever you ask your furry roommate, "who let the dogs out?" you may receive this reply from your dog: "Dog let himself out. Dog is smarter than human thinks. Dog watches you sleep."
You know, typical dog thoughts!
"No More Woof is the result of combining the latest technologies in three different tech-areas - EEG (electroencephalography) sensoring, micro computing and special [brain-computer interface] software.”
Sentences like “I’m hungry – but I don’t like this!” or "I'm curious who that is?" will be programmed into the headset and voiced via a loudspeaker.
While all this technology is still being researched, the headsets are available on Indiegogo for pre-purchase as part of their push to fund research!
In addition, the scientific team is also working on a similar technology that can translate your thought into the beautiful language of the dogs!
