FIT for animals?: “Bowlingual” dog translator
OK, so this news has already been out for a few months now, but given that Usree’s “Animal Sounds in Different Languages” is the most-viewed post on FIT, I thought it only fitting that we give some blogtime to the latest in canine translation technology. “Bowlingual” (Japanese site) is a portable dog translation device that was covered by TechCruch here on July 13. If you watch the video there or on the Bowlingual page, you can see it in action, translating dogs’ barks, woofs, and whimpers into human language. I think Japanese is the only available language at the time, but with Google Translate and a Bowlingual in hand, you’re only a few clicks away.
