This is really good innovation. Please don't ruin it fighting over patents. Let the whole world reap the benefits. Speech translation has global applications

Let's not get carried away here. There's a huge gulf between painting a wooden block to look like a stun gun and actually making one. Yeah, ST had ideas ahead of it's time, but that's all they were. . . ideas and grown men playing pretend.

It took an actual smart guy to make those things real.

Knowing Microsoft, When someone speaks to translate: 'I fed my dog this morning' , the fifth language at the end of the line will say: 'You kicked my cat tomorrow, you assclown'

I hope this isn't hampered by the likes of Apple and their lawsuits. This is true innovation, the kind that will benefit greatly to everyone around the world.

Because Star Trek gave us the concept of the universal translator, a universal translator could never be patented - at least in the US. Any device described or shown in fictional media instantly becomes unpatentable. Another example is Dick Tracey's video phone watch. If anyone realizes such a watch in real life, they could not get a patent on it because it appeared in Dick Tracy.

IMHO, no worries about patent litigation with this one.

[citation][nom]nieur[/nom]now this is some real innovation[/citation]

Microsoft does this, Nissan makes a car that can park and drive itself and NASA + numerous other companies do work on powered exoskeletons that allowed disabled people the luxury of walking.

Yet Apple comes out and markets a smart phone to non business types and makes a smaller version of a blown up iPod Touch and somehow they are named as the most innovative company in the world.

This world does not make sense sometimes.

You can still patent the method with which it is achieved.
