Project update 2 of 4
Greetings backers and subscribers,
I’m very excited to share a video of real-time, on-device translation as mentioned in our last update.
It’s not yet the universal translators in Star Trek, but we’re ecstatic to have achieved this milestone. While quality will vary depending on the robustness of the language’s model, we’ll support on-device translation for the following languages:
I can’t wait to see what interactions this technology will unlock!
On the hardware side, we’ve finished the layout of the expansion board with all the circuitry for the LCD screen, microphone, speaker, and USB emulation. It should be assembled and delivered next week, at which point we’ll start end-to-end testing to work out all the bugs, chief among them, cooling, and microphone interference.
Can’t wait to share more next week. Thanks again for all your support!
Live long and prosper,
