Google Glass Is Developing Technology That Would Allow A Dog To Talk To A Human

• Business Insider

The project is called FIDO, which stands for "facilitating interactions for dogs with occupations." It's being developed by associate professor Melody Jackson, Thad Starner, who is a technical lead/manager on Google Glass, and research scientist Clint Zeagler.

The FIDO project puts a vest and mouthpiece equipped with sensors on a dog. The dog can than then activate the sensors which would send signals to a human wearing a its own wearable computer.

The initial use case is for police officers and disabled people that use dogs.
