Imagine a world where your dog could just tell you what they want and how they feel. There would be less accidents and temper tantrums; but best of all, there would be a lot of good heart-to-hearts.
Scientists are currently developing a device that can translate your dog's barks into the English language, so your dream of fostering a stronger connection with your furry friend may become reality.
While studying prairie dogs, professor and animal behavior expert Con Slobodchikoff, from Northern Arizona University, discovered that those breed of dogs have different words to describe colors and species of predators.
This inspired Slobodchikoff to create a pet translator using artificial intelligence software that allows humans to communicate with their cat or dog.
“So many people would dearly love to talk to their dog or cat – or at least find out what they are trying to communicate. A lot of people talk to their dogs and share their innermost secrets," he said.
Here's how this is going to happen, and when you can possibly purchase this soon-to-be hot commodity.
