I wonder how quickly this technology will be used to teach animals our needs, rather than humans addressing their needs.

anyone with a pet knows perfectly well what a pet wants. science is running way behind nature as usual.

Dogs will tell you to get the damn ball. In all seriousness, I would think the more complicated a language is, he more accurate the will be.

If animals could speak the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow, but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much. - Mark Twain

If cats could talk, they would lie to you. - Rob Kopack

Not sure this technology is really needed. It will most likely be misused and abused. How about pigs,horses,cows ect---what about them?? Other technology is urgently needed over this---starting with developing a new more efficient Stun gun in which to render animals unconscious with. The animals are often alive after being stunned which is completely unacceptable. Start there-please. Thanks

If cats could talk, they wouldn't.

I imagine that this won't be much different from the fad of mood rings in the '70s. They were an interesting idea that didn't really work.
