Universal Translator - More Imaginative than Reality

Universal Translator

   Look at the above image. What you think? What is that? I know, you know that (as written on heading) It's a Translator, Universal Translator. May be you are thinking its just imagination or is more sci-fi than reality but the truth is, this thin slice of glass, that’s meant to do a lot of things is REALITY.

   Universal Translator is designed for interpreting languages, objects, concepts, and customs. Through its window mode, text mode, and speech mode, it allows the user to have a better understanding of the world around them.

  In Window Mode you look through the screen out onto the world, identifying objects which are then relayed to the user. A Wiki of information is available as provided by people living in the areas the translator is attempting to navigate.

   In Text Mode you simply translate text phrases. Translate signs, papers, or any other lettered material. Again a Wiki of information is used, and like Wikipedia, a staff of moderators ensures non-vandalized, true info.

   In Speech Mode you can translate spoken word as it happens, between multiple people. Mic and speaker are located at the top of the device. Speak into the device and it’s played back in the language of your choice.
