Designed to work with the Google Pixel 2 smartphones, the Pixel Buds wireless earphones can work as a universal translator and have conversations across 40 languages.
Speak one language into the earphones, the smartphone will translate it and speak the other language out loud on the phone using Google Translate app.
Why it’s hot: language might no longer be a barrier to moving around the world. When will technology help us transcribe different languages? Maybe also animal languages?
