Technology is getting us closer and closer to the point where we’ll be able to have conversations with our dogs. This is the very first step.
A Japanese company called Langualess just created a harness for dogs with a sensor that changes color based on how the dog is feeling: Relaxed, excited, happy, interested, or stressed.
And the harness connects to an app on your phone, so you can track your dog’s moods over time.
The company says they figured out how to detect a dog’s emotions by studying heart rate patterns for dogs in different situations.
