Arrow *Douglas* Adams' Babel Fish one step closer to reality?

Language translator Pilot fits inside your ear to translate in real-time | Daily Mail Online

Quote:
If trying to order dinner or find your hotel abroad fills you with fear due to your abysmal grasp of foreign languages, don't panic.

A forthcoming in-ear gadget is claimed to be able to translate speech like the Babel Fish in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, or the Universal Translator gadget in Star Trek.

The system, dubbed the Pilot, comprises two earpieces to be worn by two people who do not speak the same language and uses an app so the duo can converse with ease.



New thread to discuss the actual device and not my nerd fail.

to converse with ease? you may be able to understand them, but how are they going to understand what you are saying?

It's going to be difficult with so much slang in different languages. Pretty cool though and I think people would travel more with this technology at hand.

The ear piece will doom this product. I sure as hell not going to put an ear piece in my ear that I don't know where it's been.

Why not just use the phone's speaker/mic for it? Choose languages, get two buttons. Press one for your language, speak into the mic, phone voice translates for the other person. Press second button, person speaks into phone's mic, phone translates back to you.


Hmmm.. I probably should go start coding that.

I would be afraid I would say "would you like some coffee?" and it would translate "would you like me to kill you and rape your sister?"

You should do a software patent search first, because I'm pretty sure other entities are much farther ahead than you...
