NEC’s mouthy marvel.

It is a lesser known fact that one of the guiding missions of then NEC chairman, Dr Koji Kobayashi, back in the day was to develop a voice recognition translation device which could instantly translate between Japanese and English as the conversation occurred. Methinks they’re still working on it now.

The Panherina [Babel] is a flat tablet komputa which has the ability to cope with voice recognition in difficult environments. Here we see a Tokyo hip-hop cap salesman using said system in a noisy hat auction to log down…[that’s enough – Ed]. Well you get the picture…
