Submission + - Communicating with Dolphins via iPad (arstechnica.com)

chadplusplus writes: A dolphin researcher is attempting to communicate with dolphins via a custom user interface on an iPad. Apparently, he is attempting to teach the dolphins to touch certain symbols on the iPad's screen representing objects shown to the dolphin. He also records the sounds the dolphins make while doing so. He plans on analyzing the patterns between the sounds and objects in an attempt to decipher their "language". Custom software on the iPad is also capable of synthesizing the sounds. The researcher also provides some insight as to why he prefers the iPad over the Toughbook, but those are things we've all read before.
