USA - Smart Glasses Translator

Arno Froese

Google CEO Sundar Pichai teased a pair of smart glasses capable of translating languages in real time.

So, someone with the augmented reality glasses might be able to understand what another person is saying just by reading captions that are presented through the lenses while the other person speaks.

The company first ventured into smart glasses roughly a decade ago, but Google Glass was unappealing to most consumers due to a limited launch, high initial pricing and privacy concerns. Google, though, has appeared to keep pushing into the space. In 2020, it acquired North, which was an Amazon-backed company that made smart glasses., 11 May 2022

Arno's Commentary

We are reminded here that at the birth of the Church in Jerusalem, the language barrier was detoured by the supernatural work of God the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:8-11 reports: “And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.”

While we commend the progress being made to facilitate communication, at the same time we realize that this is a shadow of the prophetic fulfillment. What kind? The tendency of mankind to mimic the supernatural work of God the Holy Spirit.
