Not sure if we'll ever be convinced that the constant series of gargles, coos, whines, and wailings of babies actually do construct some cryptically hidden language, but the same people who gave us the now-infamous Bowlingual and Dream Workstop claim to have cracked the code on baby translation: not only must you analyze babies' cries, but facial expressions and body temperature changes too. Some of the things Takara Co. researchers had to say about parenting and child-rearing didn't exactly leave us feeling particularly cozy regarding their justifications for such a device, but we won't deny its appeal; especially if they can get the home version out for under $100, like they claim, and actually launch the thing soon (they're shooting for mid-2006).
