(Near) real-time translation via Raspberry Pi!

Some stunning work here by Will Powell - a Google Glass inspired translation device that uses ultra-cheap Raspberry Pi hardware and some proper home-grown ingenuity to take audio conversations and subtitle them in near-real-time!

This kind of gadget is what gets us excited about Raspberry Pi - it's giving people a chance to build solid working prototypes for little outlay. The device is in it's early stages, which leads to lag in conversations, but it's a brilliant idea that is far more perfectly realized than we have any right to expect and it can only get better.

Translators such as this will open all sorts of possibilities that language barriers usually prevent.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
