eyeglass_translatorNEC has developed an eyeglass equipment that interprets foreign languages into mother tongues and projects the translation onto a person’s retina. This device would make it possible to speak with a foreigner naturally in one’s mother tongue without an interpreter, according to sources. The NEC equipment comprises a script projector and microphone attached to the glasses, and a small computer that can be attached to the waist of a user. When two people with different mother tongues speak in their own languages, the projector displays expressions from both languages. NEC’s application of a technology to project images by casting light directly onto the retina is a world first. The retina transforms the optical information into a nerve signal, which is sent to the center of the brain via optic nerves. Read the Full Story from fareastgizmos.com
