New translation technology will allow humans to speak with dolphins
You may know already how smart dolphins are. For example being taught how to locate mines and enemy divers. It’s been long known that dolphins are very intelligent creatures. Humans have been able to communicate with dolphins on a very basic level since the 1960’s. As you can imagine though, communication is probably the number one road block when it comes to dealing with dolphins.
Researchers have begun to create a new technology that could soon allow humans and dolphins to talk to each other. Using a waterproof computer worn across the chest, divers may soon be able to decipher the chirps of dolphins, then create and project an appropriate response using a Twiddler - a handheld device that acts as a combination of mouse and keyboard - for selecting what kind of sound to make in response. The new communication technology is called Cetaccean Hearing and Telemetry or CHAT.
