Dolphins, they sure are smart! But since they can't talk, it's hard to communicate with them. Enter the iPad, which some see as a great way to facilitate cross-species communication.
Dolphin research scientist Jack Kassewitz has started using an iPad with dolphins to start building a language in which he can communicate with the animals.
"We think that once the dolphins get the hang of the touch screen, we can let them choose from a wide assortment of symbols to represent objects, actions and even emotions. Waterproofing, processor speed, touch-sensitivity, anti-glare screens, and dolphin-friendly programs are essential. As this database of dolphin symbols grows - we'll need fast technology to help us respond appropriately and quickly to the dolphins.
