Bowlingual to Hit US

Bowlingual, the device that translates the barks, whines and growls of dogs into English, is to be launched in the US market in August. It can translate 200 different voiced emotions as well as 23 from physical gestures into English text messages on a wireless monitor. Released by toy maker Takara in Japan last September, it has sold 200,000 units. The company hopes to sell three times that number in America, where it will be priced at $120. It will be sold through toymaker Hasbro Inc. as well as pet shops, gift shops and other outlets. Bowlingual PR, PDF file.
