Google annoyed translation glasses last week Google I / O Developer Conferencefulfilling the promise that one day you can talk to someone who speaks a foreign language and see the English translation in your glasses.

Contractors of the company demonstrates the glasses in a video; he showed not only “closed inscriptions” – real-time text writing in the same language what another person says – but also a translation into and from English and Mandarin or Spanish, which allows people who speak two different languages ​​to have a conversation. while allowing hearing-impaired users to see what others are saying.

As Google Translate hardware, glasses would solve a major sore point with the use of Google Translate, which is: If you use an audio translation, the audio to be translated enters the conversation in real time. By presenting the translation visually, you can follow the conversations much more easily and naturally.

Unlike Google Glass, the prototype translation glasses are also augmented reality (AR). Let me explain what I mean.

Augmented reality occurs when a device captures data from the world and, based on its recognition of what that data means, adds information to it that is accessible to the user.

Google Glass was not an augmented reality – it was a heads-up display. The only contextual or environmental awareness he could handle was location. Based on location, may provide step-by-step directions or location-based reminders. But he usually could not collect visual or audio data and then return the user’s information about what they saw or heard.
