If you’ve ever been to a foreign country where you don’t know the language, you understand how frustrating it is to do something as simple as order food at a restaurant.
Well, thanks to this new innovation from Japan’s biggest mobile carrier, NTT DoCoMO, reading any foreign language can be a lot easier from now on.
The company has created a pair of high-tech glasses that translate Japanese into the user’s language of choice.
What a wearer reads is captured by a camera and sent to a cloud server. A software program translates the Japanese characters in real time. And the translation pops up in front of the wearer’s eye.
The whole process is pretty snappy. And although the technology only works with Japanese at this time, additional languages can’t be far behind.
