Earlier this month, Florida Atlantic University dolphin researcher and Guggenheim fellow Denise Hertzing announced that a cellphone-sized device now being tested in the Bahamas may allow the mammals to communicate with us. Worn around a diver's neck, it uses mathematical formulas to decode dolphins' whistles and clicks into human language.
"As dolphins are likely to be the second smartest creature on the planet, with similar cognitive abilities and complex social structures to humans, this device will hopefully open the window for a great understanding and connection with other sentient beings," she said in a press release.
