Google Just Revolutionised Travelling with One Product
And potentially our love lives too...
Dừng mọi thứ (that means ‘stop everything’ in Vietnamese), because Google just rewrote the travelling game with a single invention - instant translation headphones.
Yep, earlier this week the mega-giant-literally-do-they-own-us-all business unveiled ‘Pixel Buds’, which look like ordinary headphones, but are anything but.
In fact, these little babies allow the wearer to listen up to 40 different languages, while the words are instantly translated into their very own ears.
When the user answers (this might blow your mind a bit), his or her response will also be translated for the person they are speaking to - via some front-facing speakers. Whuuuuut.
The implications are huge for every level of communication, including the language of love. For example, if only these had been around for that holiday fling with Paulo, which ended abruptly when you used a travel dictionary to try and say something sexy, but actually insulted his mother.
Ladies, gentlemen, and Paulo - welcome to the future.
Google’s translating earbuds will hit the market in November priced at $159 (around 120 quid), which isn’t too bad - although try not to scrunch them up in a big ol’ tangle in the bottom of your bag yeah, because that’s still fairly pricey.
Whaddya reckon? Excited?
