Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

An­i­mal own­ers could soon be able to con­verse with their dogs with the use of a pet trans­la­tor. A group of fu­tur­ol­o­gists at the cre­ative com­pany Next Big Thing be­lieve there is a grow­ing de­mand for a prod­uct that al­lows pet own­ers to ac­tu­ally speak to their beloved pets. Speak­ing about the ini­tia­tive to The Guardian, Pro­fes­sor Con Slo­bod­chikoff, of North Ari­zona Univer­sity, said: "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." The pro­fes­sor is fundrais­ing to raise money to work on a pet trans­la­tor de­vice as the on­line re­tailer is al­ready sell­ing a Hu­man-to-Cat Trans­la­tor.
