AI ‘translator’ glasses let you understand any language in the world

Are you struggling with Duolingo since the new year?⁠ Well, you might never need to learn a language again, thanks to some new augmented reality glasses which can translate for you in real time.

The TCL RayNeo X2 are a high-tech wearable smart goggles which come packed full of features designed to beam digital information straight into your eyeballs from their lenses.

This includes everything from videos, music, and social media.

But perhaps the coolest feature of all is the RayNeo X2's translation tool, which allows you to automatically see subtitles for any foreign language spoken around you.

The headset uses AI-powered translation to interpret multiple languages simultaneously and in real time. If you're speaking to someone face-to-face, the glasses will generate subtitles for what they're saying.

As the glasses use prescription lenses, the idea is that you can wear them abroad on holiday or to business meetings and understand what others around you say.

CNET's Scott Stein, who tried out the glasses at CES 2023, said: "The most impressive [demo] is a real-time translation tool that allowed me to understand someone in the room speaking Chinese to me.

"However, the live transcription also presents what everyone in earshot is saying, too, including myself."

Stein added that the glasses also give you pop-up directions when you're using the built-in navigation system, and can also play music through the earpieces.

By delivering subtitles to the wearer, TCL's AR glasses go one step further than the likes of Google Pixel Buds, which convert live audio into the language of your choice using the Google Translate app on Android.

Of course, there's really no substitute for the real thing; learning a foreign language improves your memory, multitasking skills, and enriches your life by allowing you to communicate with different people. So don't uninstall Duolingo just yet.
