How we can have our pets speak - let's look at advances in neuroscience that can highly likely lead us to a position of being able to develop speech in any creature having brains.

What happens in the brain when we hear something? Researchers took a patient who plays a piano well and recorded his brain activity when playing.

Then they turned the sound off and the same was done once again: this time the sound existed only in the brain. The striking results may suggest a way of developing a certain area in the brain that can compose music. And then a human - or any other creature with brains - can play the music by using mental power only. The sound of the music can be scanned or read from the brain directly - and music can be played out loud, in the form of sound waves and be heard by others.

Another way of advancing this result is to try to develop certain areas of the brain to reflect ideas we usualy express through words, that is speech. And then process the sound generated in the brain in a similar way - convert or translate the activity into sound that can be heard.

It is worth working in this direction to make a device that is able of reading brain activity in a creature and translate it straightaway into speech understandable by others.

Actually we might want to have this kind of reader-translator as we want to please all people keeping whatever pet they keep - dogs, cats, parrots, snakes, lizards, tortoises, even fish!

The goal at that is to make owners of pets even happier by enabling their pets with ability to sing songs, speak and have conversations.

Lets get back to the study which however was done on humans.

First, the participant played two piano pieces on an electronic piano with the sound volume of the digital keyboard on. Second, the participant replayed the same piano pieces, but without auditory feedback, and the participant was asked to imagine hearing the music in his mind. The result is similarities between perception and imagery was found.

The experiment done was a pretty simple one. Of our interest are ways to advance it.

The first thing we need to do is to determine what makes the two conditions different. That is to determine different mechanisms in the brain that are involved in a) generating music that is imaginary, unheard and b) actual hearing the sound in physical form. We are going to support this research and get involved in it many different teams.

The original paper is called "Neural Encoding of Auditory Features during Music Perception and Imagery: Insight into the Brain of a Piano Player". In terms of authors this research task is laid out this way:

"It remains unclear how the human cortex represents spectrotemporal sound features during auditory imagery, and how this representation compares to auditory perception.

This is the first turning point for further research.

The second is to replace recording electrocorticographic signals from electrodes in the brain with more suitable non-invasive technique to move towards developing devices for mass user, ones doing scanning and translation.

And the third turning point in research work to be done. We first focus on music, on auditory information that is reperesented by high and low frequency sounds. In more advanced research we are going to work on linguistic information, on its representation in the brain and ways to scan and translate it to be able to recreate it to be heard.

Our goal is to build a network of shower cabins equipped with cameras – very special ones – everywhere and also a network – a freshly smelling one - of people who make videos, watch and share them.


Basically people can make their videos about anything, but we primarily want to create favorable conditions for those who is liked by watchers more. What’s the award? You’ll see it soon!


As we are going to roll out the network of showers – newly designed ones from scratch – all over the place and create along with that a social network online, we also want to protect our users and watchers. For that we shall implement AI algorithms that prevent displaying those parts of human body people don’t want to see.


And besides these things we also want to make user devices that allow  to send and receive scents over the Internet to enable our watchers to sense scents at their place. As ones shoot videos where they apply natural beauty products others who watch can perceive the scents of the actual aromatic substances applied. There are lots, lots, lots of them. And this differs from traditional Internet-of-smells ideas.


Every part of the project may easily prove to be difficult to implement. But this makes the point. We want to come on to the market with absolutely new and completely newly smelling platform.


We want to integrate in the platform to come:

-          New designs of showers using bionic sustainable materials and a new kind of filters and pipes to replace existing ones being commonly used at the moment

-          Video-streaming service with AI support (AI, Artificial Intelligence is going to be very smart, caring and supportive)

-          User devices able to communicate actual scents from one place to another (not the same as ordinary digital smell technologies)


We will use AI support as well to fairly reward best video-creators in a way as different from ordinary platforms in the Internet as the sky and the earth. Just turn on the water and start relaxing applying beauty products that you love better – the rest we will take on. Only take care to smell lovely.


We are also going to develop and provide smart and helpful bionic creatures whose job is to safeguard the comfort our customers are to enjoy in their shower cabins. With the help of these lovely bionic creatures so much attached to and ready to defend their masters we’re going to make our showers as safe place as possible where violence is prevented by bionic pets and by means of advanced secure technologies they are going to embody.


If you are someone who is under stress just think for a moment how life can be brighter, calmer and happier if you let yourself relax. Think of gentle streams of fresh water falling from the shower. Breathe in your lovely aroma and let worries and anxieties vanish.


The world of relaxation is before you. Throw all the burden off your shoulders. Happy life is here. Just turn on the happiness in your mind!


We want all developers wanting to join the work on our project  to turn on the happiness in their minds! The mindset oriented towards calmness, happiness, relaxation and safety is a must for everybody wanting to enter our team of developers.


Let everybody contribute what he or she is good at. We need talents and those working hard from different backgrounds. What we do first is we gather together a team of winners.


And let us build the world of happiness for everybody!


The entire shower can be a bionic creature itself: big beautiful flower, or just a plant you would like better, that has absorbed moisture and now give it to you with streams of fresh water.


Think about the entire mechanics of a new shower with its pipes to come as a bionic creature and you will fully understand the importance of every our so different customer and the entire network of showers to keep our planet green.


Our designers and developers shall create solutions that are compatible with the highest standards and make things that have to be in harmony with nature. We’ll probably have to create even more advanced standards in the industry to come to save the world.


These solutions and these things are up to a lot of research and development. We have yet to carry it out in order to make it possible to create an absolutely new industry of sustainable water supply including developing a lifecycle fully friendly to the environment. This is a challenge to our developers. But the reward, a sustainable world, is worth trying hard.


So let’s think about a shower as being a plant able to grow everywhere in nature, who needs moisture for its growth and whose roots extend, reaching out to water sources around, adsorb and filter water, and in whose veins flows a clean liquid. Let this picture of a beautiful flower inspire our search and development which aim is to let people have these plants in their homes and let our cities have entire gardens of these plants everyplace.


Finally while developing these products we have to think in terms of solutions that will work both on the Earth and in Space as well: for people living in Orbital Train, a new Space Civilization to come.


In the next sections oriented for developers we’ll deepen our understanding of what technologies it takes to make the idea outlined a reality. Stay tuned!


The likely ways of developing likely technologies to build what we want to is up to a lot of discussion. If you think you’re somebody who is enthusiastic about the idea and want to contribute in the development, get involved.
