Collar That Allows Dogs To Speak

With laser projection keyboard.
  [vote for,

The bottom of the collar has a projector that projects controls in front of the dog that they can select with their paw. One is on at all times, the "TALK" button. When they hit it with their paw, the other controls are projected. "OUT", "PLAY", "FOOD", "WATER" which when selected, causes a dog sounding voice to play that word from a speaker in the collar.

The projections would be simplified pictures of the request but could even be scenes projected showing the door being opened for instance and when they put their paw on it a sensor senses the full scene has a dog paw in front of it and selects it.

As the dog's vocabulary grows, more button choices can be added. "SCRATCH EARS", "PAT MY HEAD", "CUDDLE", "TIRED", "SQUIRREL", "STUPID CAT" etc.

Alternately, when the dog barks, the projector can light up and project the various projected buttons.

       Re: Bunny the talking dog link.   

       I'm surprised more research isn't being done on this. I think we're evolving dogs to eventually speak actual words. Their mouths have the physical parts to form words, they do make talking sounds already, they already have an innate understanding of communication, mood, anger, praise etc.   

       Once you get parent dogs to train their puppies to talk we've got an actual evolutionary step here.
