Dug from “Up” would be so proud.
The No More Woof project has designed a prototype dog collar that translates dog brainwaves into speech. The brainwave-reading gadget has sensors that detect EEG brainwave patterns, which are then translated into human-speech equivalents and made audible through a speaker.
According to CNET, the device isn’t as sophisticated as Dug’s. The detectable patterns are limited to thoughts like, “I’m hungry,” “I’m tired,” and “Who are you?” The project is currently raising funds on Indiegogo.
The creators behind the futuristic dog collar said the project is a “work in progress” and still early in development.
A $65 version comes with only one sensor and the ability to determine a few different though patterns. A $300 pledge gets you a two-sensor version that can distinguish at least four though patterns.
