The latest random gadget out of Japan is a device that will translate how your dog is feeling based on the sound of its bark. From the report it sounds as though they’re serious about this device. It seems fairly complex for something that I have a hard time believing is actually useful. You attach a microphone to your dog’s collar which records the barking (excuse me, “voice print”) and transmits it wirelessly to the “canine-emotion” pager, which displays how your dog feels.
