The Bowlingual, a gadget that analyzes a dog's bark to detect its emotion, is being relaunched. First put on sale in 2002, a new version from toymaker Takara Tomy is being reintroduced in Japan in August. The original version had a microphone to be worn around the dog's neck and a handheld unit that received data from the microphone, determined the emotion, and then displayed a corresponding phrase on the screen for the owner.
