During Google I/O 2022, Google finally blew our minds with eyeglasses that literally translate what someone is saying to you before your eyes -- provided you're wearing the glasses, of course.The glasses look perfectly normal, appear to work without any assistance from a phone, and almost have us forgetting all about Google Glass.In truth, not much is known about the glasses beyond the short video demonstration, which Google ran at the tail end of a nearly two-hour event -- a Steve Jobsian, "one more thing moment." The glasses use augmented reality and artificial intelligence (and possibly embedded cameras and microphones) to see someone speaking to you, hear what they're saying, translate it and display the translation live on the embedded, translucent screens built into the eyeglass frames."Language is so fundamental to communicating with each other," explained Google  CEO Sundar Pichai, but he noted that trying to follow someone who is speaking another language "can be a real challenge."The prototype lenses (thankfully, Google did not call them "Google Glass 3") uses Google's advancements in translation and transcription to deliver translated words "in your line of sight," explained Pichai.In the video, a young woman explains how her mother speaks Mandarin and she speaks English. Still, seeing normal-looking augmented reality glasses that could solve a very real-world problem, (they could translate sign language for someone who doesn't know it or show words to the hearing impaired) is exciting.
