Wow that's really impressive.

Imagine if you could take your cell phone with you to another country, hold it near someone who is speaking to you in another language, and have it translate what they're saying back into English in real time.

Awesome!! When this is more mature I bet companies all around the world will be interested in using this.

and that is scary

now when you call tech support you get some indian that barely speaks English, in few years they won't even have to know English, it will just be some poor translation that sounds robotic.

Why are the mouth movements not wrong when they talk to aliens in star trek?

If I will be able to understand a word they say it will be a darn sight better than it is now!!
