Doggie Translater

from the why-don't-you-just-tell-me-what-you-want? dept

Japanese company Takara is working on Bowlingual, a gadget that could allow better communication between Man and his best friend. The device can listen to a dog, determines what his barks mean and then plays a prerecorded phrase. Now if we could just get a similar device that allows humans to understand each other.
