Title: Cyborg Dogs!
Post by: frankinstien on October 21, 2020, 08:41:43 pm
Here's an article about using augmented reality headsets on dogs (

But what if we apply optogenetics (,the%20neuronal%20populations%20of%20interest.) to our Kanine friends? Then build interfaces that can connect to wifi, phone signals, etc, and even translate dog thoughts into words or at least teach dogs to think in words that they can communicate through the interface! Reminds me of the novel and movie A Boy and His Dog (1975 film) (, where the dog is telepathic.

I've thought about attaching a small walkie-talkie to my dog's collar. She has the tendency to chase something like a squirrel, and then run "back" in completely the wrong direction when I call her due to floppy ear sound bouncing syndrome. With some kind of speaker on her, I could tell her to sit, or stay. It would be great to develop some minimal interference technologies to help with long distance pet communication. Possibly something smell based, maybe a treat dispenser. Maybe an AI assistant that could speak doggish, a canine Siri clipped on the collar to help out is certain situations.

Drive a tone generator with the 4 TTL outputs.  Teach dog to tones.
