Intertainment’s Ortsbo Debuts Patent Pending “Head to Head” Translation Technology for Tablet Devices
Very handy device for those that are patient and have sufficient language and typing skills to go through the motions of a conversation in writing. You must be willing to have snail-paced interactions with foreigners during travel. Not recommended for important business.
A definite plus for those that may strike a strong bond with someone and want to express themselves. This could facilitate social conversation with a meaningful other, which conversation would be otherwise inhibited or curtailed through the use of an interpreter.
It will be interesting to see how and what the technology evolves to.
