Life Imitates (Animated) Art
Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes? is the famous final episode of The Simpsons’ third season where Homer’s long lost brother Herb invents the baby translator. When the baby cries, Herb’s invention translates screams into language. Proving the theory that there will be an iPhone app for everything, Cry Translator (available for $9.95 at Apple’s iPhone App Store) claims its technology will identify and translate into English, certain distinct cries made by infants. Tested in Spain and North America, the device apparently translates baby cries within ten seconds. Any guesses as to how soon a pet translator will hit the App Store?
