Canine Mind Reading

That’s right! It is wallace-shawn-inconceivable that the Indegogo No More Woof campaign raised over $22,000 from 231 contributors. The project has been around since late 2013, but this is the first time I’ve run across it (via the recent IEEE article below). I just couldn’t resist posting the picture.

It goes without saying that the Scandinavian-based company NSID (currently “hibernating”) failed to deliver on its promise. This is well chronicled by IEEE: The Cautionary Tale of “No More Woof,” a Crowdfunded Gadget to Read Your Dog’s Thoughts.

The article even mentions Melon, a human EEG headband Kickstarter that I was involved with. I feel fortunate that I actually received a working device.

BCI is very difficult even under the best of circumstances with humans. I think the correct thought sequence for working with any EEG-based device is:

  1. “I’m excited”
  2. “I’m curious who that is?”
  3. “I’m tired”

Woof!
