Amazon Says Pet Translator App Will Be Available in 10 Years
Pet owners would do anything to understand what their beloved animals’ barks, meows, and other peeps truly mean. That is which is why Amazon is reportedly working on a device that will make every animal lover’s wish come true – a pet translator.
The retail giant Amazon is working with Futurologist William Higham of the Next Big Thing to come up with the device and Higham is quite optimistic that the pet translator everyone is dreaming about would be ready in 10 years or less.
“Innovative products that succeed are based around a genuine and major consumer needs. The amount of money now spent on pets – they are becoming fur babies to so many people – means there is huge consumer demand for this. Somebody is going to put this together,” Higham told The Guardian.
Higham mentioned professor emeritus Con Slobodchikoff of Northern Arizona University who intends to develop a cat and dog translation device based on the results of his three decades of research on prairie dogs, which he learned “have words for different species of predator and can describe the color of clothes of human, or the coat of coyotes or dogs.”
“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. With cats, I’m not sure what they’d have to say. A lot of times it might just be “you idiot, just feed me and leave me alone,” said Slobodchikoff.
It can be recalled that a similar project called “No More Woof” had been attempted by the Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery a few years ago, however, the entire thing had been put on hold after the developers realize the magnitude of what they were trying to accomplish.
