This Headset Reads Your Dog’s Thoughts

A group of Scandinavians currently have designs on creating the first device to translate animal thoughts into human language. The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery call this “non-obtrusive device” No More Woof. Assuming this isn’t a joke, the unit works by taking EEG recorders in the headset and registering voltage fluctuations resulting from ionic current flow in the dog’s brain. A Rapsberry Pi computer then translates these currents into human words. Put this on your dog, take it to the dog park and Fluffy’s first words might be: “You’re not really gonna do this to me, are you?”
