Google Translate turns a year old today, and as a present to us, gets a new feature... 'Conversation Mode'. This feature is still in the experimental phase, but if they can pull it off, seems pretty ridiculously awesome! The gist of it is that each person in a conversation talks into the Android device and it translates each side for the other person. It only works for Spanish and English right now, and not at 100% yet, but if this thing evolves... Can you say, 'Star Trek Universal Translator' in our lifetime?!? Wow! Are we really this close to completely eradicating the language barriers? That'll be one of the biggest birthday presents to the whole world!
Here's a video demonstration of the tech in action (kinda long): [video=youtube;DtMfdNeGXgM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtMfdNeGXgM&feature=player_detailpage[/video]
