Dimming Translator / Übersetzer

Dimming Translator

Dimming translator makes you read foreign text just as the text you’re reading is in your mother language.

It is a mobile device that can directly translate the text in the language you are not familiar with into the language you know. Its screen is mainly made of dimming glass which can change between transparent and opaque. All you need to do is to put the transparent translator on the foreign text. The translator will change into opaque, covering the foreign text, and displays the translation.
