Microsoft’s Concept Translating Phone

Microsoft is showing off some pretty amazing technology at TechFest. Todd Bishop and others got a chance to take a look at what is being called the Translating Phone. It not only makes a transcription of your conversation that becomes searchable in Exchange, but it also translates in real time a voice conversation that you might be having with someone who speaks a different language.

Obviously this isn’t letter perfect at the moment, and there’s no hint of when it might become a product, but I have to say, the demo looks pretty cool.
