Google AR glasses translating your conversations
The accumulated hours of Spanish lessons back in school, were they all just a waste of time? These Google AR glasses would suggest so. This Google prototype is basically bringing Google Translate into a real-time AR experience where you while having a conversation are provided with a translated overlay text.
The concept was yesterday demonstrated in a video at the Google I/O developers conference. “Language is so fundamental to communicating with each other,” explained Google CEO Sundar Pichai, but he noted that trying to follow someone who is speaking another language “can be a real challenge.” The Google AR translation glasses can be seen as a follow-up to the original Google Glass, launched in 2012. Let’s just hope the translations won’t get us into trouble.
