glance / the wearable display translating foreign languages


As a society globalizes, difficulties in verbal communication arise from differences in spoken languages. GLANCE is a smart ‘translating’ virtual image device for multi-national workplaces. Voice input from the built-in microphone is transferred to the AI translator. Subsequently, the beam projector projects the translated words with subtitles on the display. By simply glancing the subtitles, people can understand right away what a foreigner says. It can be used in business negotiations with foreign buyers or at construction sites with many foreign laborers.
