Google Showed AR Glasses Prototype That Translates Languages in Real-Time

The glasses allow keeping eye contact while talking to someone and understanding what they're saying.

You have probably experienced a language barrier at least once in your life, especially when talking to someone and not having the internet to translate whatever's being said. Google is working on this problem and has shown a prototype of its AR glasses that translate speech in real-time.

The glasses help not only people speaking different languages but also the deaf or hard of hearing. The dialogue is made even easier as the glasses allow to maintain eye contact at the same time.

Ar seems to be "a new frontier of computing" to Google:

"We’ve been building augmented reality into many Google products, from Google Lens to multisearch, scene exploration, and Live and immersive views in Maps," Google CEO Sundar Pichai said. "These AR capabilities are already useful on phones and the magic will really come alive when you can use them in the real world without the technology getting in the way."

The glasses still have a long way to go, but the technology does look exciting.
