The very first device that can translate animal thoughts into human language has apparently arrived.

The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery (NSID) has developed the latest technological innovation called 'No More Woof.' It reads a dog's mind through electroencephalogram sensors, measuring its brain waves. The company has apparently decoded thought patterns of dogs that can be easily detected. The thoughts include "I want to pee," "I'm tired" and "I'm hungry."

NSID is a small research lab in Scandinavia which previously developed concepts such as iRock, the Fly Lamp and Nebula 12. iRock is a rocking chair which charges the iPad.  The Fly Lamp is a 'hovering lamp' which follows the owner around and Nebula 12 is an 'indoor' cloud, the official Web site of the company revealed. They also claimed to have other innovative designs like a flying carpet. According to the company, 'No More Woof' is its 'most revolutionary invention' up to date.

The company, on the contrary, admitted that 'No More Woofs' is yet to be transformed into reality as it still remains to be merely a concept. However, the researchers are hopeful that a development kit will soon be ready. Anyone who is interested to get a device like this (which, we believe, could be millions), NSID can be reached by mail HERE.

The company explains in the Web site that the first round happens to be partially novelty science as the brainwaves of different dogs vary considerably. It is possible, they said, that common patterns can be detected.

According to NSID, the innovation can open up new possibilities in the communication between dogs (or any other animal for that matter) and humans. However, it added there could a significant improvement in such communication when there can be a machine that translated human language into the dog's way of communicating.

NSID has already collected about $10,000 for the product on Indiegogo. You can pre-order the device HERE if it interests you.
