In Practice

This product would translate the verbal language that it hears, into your native language so that you can understand what is being said.  This would work for travelers and international business professionals.  It would be ideal as a small headset, or as an additional download that is compatible with current devices.  The benefits of instant communication would be enormous for a variety of people.  An additional attachment could be added to translate what you are saying into the language of the person you are speaking with as well.
