Google’s Pixel Buds: Babel Fish

Google Pixel Buds - Bluetooth Earbuds for Pixel 2 - Google Store

Google Pixel Buds translate speech in 40 languages, company says | The Kansas City Star

"Google announced that it will make its own earbuds to rival its competitors, and the tech giant says the buds allow wearers to “speak” in 40 languages.
The earbuds — which aren’t wireless but wrap around the neck — are called Pixel Buds and were among a new line of products presented Wednesday at a company event.
The Buds will compete with Apple’s wireless earbuds — the AirPods. Both companies have priced their buds exactly the same — $159, according to The Verge.
But only Google is claiming to make its wearers multilingual in real time and at the touch of a button"

Babel Fish (website) - Wikipedia

" from the Babel fish, a fictional species in Douglas Adams's book and radio series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy that could instantly translate languages. In turn, the name of the fictional creature refers to the biblical account of the confusion of languages that arose in the city of Babel."
