Ever wonder what your dog is saying when he starts barking wildly in the middle of the night? If a current Indiegogo campaign is successful, you may soon have your answer. A new device called No More Woof is a canine-sized headset, which connects EEG recorders to a Raspberry Pi computer and a loudspeaker. The headset supposedly allows “ionic current flows” into your dog’s brain to translate his barks into human speech. ST, the company behind No More Woof, thinks it can get a product to market within a few years. ST has made a $65 model that can supposedly distinguish between three different thoughts, including tiredness and curiosity, with more ambitious and powerful devices to come. While the company has achieved some results, it knows it still has a lot of work to do and is still far away from a massively produced product. You’ll have to wait a few more years to figure out what Fido is saying. Or, you can just guess: it’s probably just a squirrel.
