Inspired by google's project glass I put together an application that can provide translated subtitles in real time. It allows me and my sister Elizabeth to have a conversation when I speak English and she speaks Spanish.

It uses two Raspberry Pi boards, Vuzix Star 1200, Jawbone mic. Audio is picked up and streamed from mobile device to a server that recognises, translates (uses microsoft translate API and caching layer) and pushes back. One pi drives the glasses and the other the TV that shows both halves of the conversation. Elizabeth uses a mic but would use the same Vuzix, Jawbone, Pi setup if I had another set of kit.
