A New Device from Japan Gives Man's Best Friend a Leg Up on Interspecies Communications. Now Dog Owners Can Chat with Their Chihuahuas
A huge hit in Japan since it was launched last year, Bow-Lingual is the brainchild of Masahiko Kajita, a product developer at the Takara toy company in Tokyo, who honed the device with the help of an animal behaviorist. A small wireless microphone on the dog's collar beams data from the bark to a handheld receiver, which translates the sound using a 200-phrase dog vocabulary. "Bow-Lingual," says Kajita, 42, "doesn't translate barks into mere words but rather emotions." Thus the LCD might display phrases such as "What's that? How exciting!" or, in cases of real excitement, "I feel like dancin'!"
Kajita, who plans to introduce Meow-Lingual for cats soon, has lofty hopes for Bow-Lingual. "I hope it gets different people talking, brings them together as one, even spreads peace," he says. Right. Now if only it would stop Fido from drinking out of the toilet.
