A group of inventors from Sweden and Finland says they are close to develop a dog translator for English. It’s a device pets will have to wear, very similar to conventional headphones.

Nordic society of invention and discovery says its prototype, which has dubbed ‘No more woof, “will analyze the processes of thought of animals and turn them into human language,” in the English language.

According to BBC News, the launch of these translation devices is planned for April of this year ($ 65). “No more woof” to interpret patterns including “I’m tired,” “I’m excited,” and “Who are you?”

To develop this device, the inventors say that they have combined three types of technology: electroencephalography, the micro-computer and a special software (BCI) that will detect, analyze and translate the brainwaves of the dogs in thoughts.

The inventors have begun to raise funds on Indiegogo crowd funding platform.
