We spend a lot of time talking to our dogs, but when they bark back, we generally aren't too sure what they mean. No More Woof is a headset that aims to pick up EEG signals from a dog's brain and attempt to translate them into English. The creators, who come from the Swedish product-development center called Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery, say it's still a work in progress, but they have seen results. (It's still a few years away from being a marketable product, though.)
That hasn't stopped backers on IndieGoGo from contributing nearly $20,000, twice what developers were seeking.
