Dat feel when the future is now. There's no need to learn Japanese anymore.

Neat. I wonder what power source they run on.
>>
Also, the video probably should've noted it allows for Japanese to English as well.

Well....IT IS an amazing piece of technology.
If it actually works the way it is being promoted that is.

But, I dunno. Its a fun gimmick for tourists at best. Get on your ass and learn japanese properly.

I imagine this must be a scam, because I don't see how this could work better than a smartphone app running the same algorithms and databases,

More like nervous giggling because they're scared.
>>
>>14602556

Yeah I'm going to wait and see until it comes out and how well it works for people first. It does several languages not just Japanese so it can come in handy if it actually works.
>>
This is staged and it's still cringe. Even if it was real and you go into the country using it you look like a retarded ape who didn't bother to learn the language.
>>
This is the best chance most of you losers have. You'll never be able to live the dream like pic related. Stay mad weebs.

Am I supposed to believe that they out of nowhere, created a machine translator that somehow beats the accumulated efforts of every other machine translator over the ages. Several times over?
That's just impossible. If they had the technology to make an accurate machine translator of this level, they would be able to make advanced AIs and they wouldn't be making shitty little neckstrap things to sell to tourists. They would be making deals with governments all over the world and take computing to the next level.
>>
Embarrassing retards in this thread that shit on something that can remove barriers and help create communication and exchange of culture and instead want people to learn the dozens of languages spoken around the world instead of helping to unify them instead

Just shameful

It's not out of reach. But still some ways off.
Anyway I wouldn't trust this company to pull it off.

I don't like the ad but that's because I'm prude.

Enjoy your shitty worse-than-google-translate actual product after having fallen for a viral campaign with highly likely pre-recorded messages, OP.

If you want to unify the world, make people learn a global language (like the one you're using right now, or an attempt like Esperanto), or actually make an advanced AI that can do the things the literal Babel fish can do (protip: we're not there yet).
Don't sell scammy products through viral marketing to gullible retards lazy enough to believe and eat this shit up.

>>14606147
If it were an app people would demand a demo for review, etc. If you put up the silly excuse of having it "entwined" with the hardware then you can avoid such reviews because you know your product sucks until product release and people have to buy it.

We tried, people like to cling to their own languages even when English is the international business language.

Well, it is kind of nice to be able to go to some 2000 year old monument in bum-fuck China and mostly understand what it is talking about.

Like, the people living there now actually share a cultural link going back at least a few hundred years, while New Worlders and Modernists just don't have it.

>>14606212
The problem with global language is that certain languages are better at certain things. Japanese for instance has god-tier phonetics.
>>
>>14606316
>>14606971

No one said they had to unlearn their language. But if all international trade is done in english, it's in your best interest to learn it
>>
>>14606278
They just need to do with English whatever the metric system guys did to force their system on the world.

English sounds like ass, I don't mind writing and reading it but I hate listening to it. Get a better international language if you want to replace other languages.
>>
>>14610639
I don't think it's about replacing. but having something ib common.

I've said it before, bilingual world. Local language to maintain culture, and global like esperanto to do away the language barrier. It's utopia, but anyone can learn two languages so long ad you start early.

I do not agree.
I think it sounds very cool, and so do many others.

They want controversy to drive the advertisement of the product.
Basically they get outrage from social media and all the free publicity at very little cost.

I have no idea if it has worked because I don't give a fuck about normalfags crying on their blogs and twitters.

While this particular device is a scam, 'universal translators' are currently within current technological possibilities.
They will not fit inside a little thing though.

Take siri or other voice recognition software found in phones, they work by sending the audio to be processed in a hugeass server slash supercomputer, then send the results back.
There's no reason why you can't get a device that records the audio, sends it to be processed, translates it and then sends it back.

Speech parsing is current tech.

That said, the automatic translations are likely to be awful, but they're better than nothing.

English isn't an invention of, nor solely spoken by USAns.
>>
Google has stupid amounts of money and man power that they can just throw at anything, and it's translations suck for anything more than single words. This thing isn't any better.

Get off your lazy ass and learn a damn language. If you actually try for at least a year you won't be fluent but you can become conversational. I and many others have, and it's fine. I'm just barely conversational, and actually trying yourself will have more charm and impact than using google or anything else.

The idea of using technology over yourself for communication is trash.
>>
>>14619198
How do you become conversational? I can read a lot but I can't form sentences well myself.
>>
>>14622189
You have to talk with people and actually study the vocabulary and grammar, then try to use it. If you don't have the opportunity for a conversation partner, just try talking out loud, and listening to drama or whatever to get the listening practice.
>>
>>14618655

Last I checked the USA isn't the reason English is the internation business language, because we're not the ones who used to control half the world.

I don't feel like watching the video, but how accurate are these?
>>
>>14624623
According to the video, which they've outright said was entirely made with actors, it's an incredibly accurate, professional-level translation that also detects the gender and rough age of your voice to add appropriate grammar not present in the original soundbite on the fly.

Alternatively, in the fake video filled with fake people and a fake pre-prototype device, they just faked the translations, which would be incredibly easy to do.
