I liked your fun thing to do a lot, it seemed very interesting and looks like something I would check out but I particularly liked your mind map because you were able to generate many idea. Not only generate many ideas but ideas that all seemed to connect together, I think that all the connected ideas are what sets your mind map apart from the rest.
What if your dog whisperer device allowed your voice to be translated into barking and your dog would have a collar that would translate barks into English. I think this would be super cool, a way you can communicate to your dog and a way for your dog to communicate to you.
I wish for your sketches you would have used a different kind of paper I feel like the gridding can get somewhat distracting.
