Japanese toymaker Takara Tomy said on Thursday that it would launch a talking version of its Bowlingual gadget that can "translate" dog barks into the human language.

The new model analyses six emotions, including joy, sadness and frustration, and speaks phrases such as "Play with me!" -- an improvement on the original which just showed them on a screen.

"Dog owners can enjoy the toy at a dog run and a park," said Tomy spokeswoman Chie Yamada.

I'm not sure weather they can prove it actually translates what a dog is barking but I would be interested in testing it out on my St. Bernard lol... Sounds kind of cool don't ya think?

It's been done.

I have a golden retriever. If he could talk, that's what he would say.

Gettin' one of those for one of my beagles would be a bad idea...

Every time someone pass by the house (god forbid it be a dog) the only thing that would show up is:

Awe, how cute is that! I think I would find it amusing probably for the first 30-60 minutes but if it didn't continue to make me laugh like that video clip did I would get bored fast.

Didn't the Simsons already do this like back in the 90s?

I am waiting until they come out with the cat version.
