Star Trek Style Universal Translator Fast Approaching. Qapla'!

Ok, so I would have translated that whole title into Klingon, but my language skills suck so bad that I’m pretty sure a targ could write Klingon better than I. Anyway…how cool is it that we’re one step closer to a real universal translator? And this step…is a doozy.

Microsoft recently showed off new technology that, not only translates your spoken word into another language in real time, but also makes the voice of the translated version sound very much like the actual speaker’s voice.

Remembering Gene Roddenberry... August 19, 1921 – October 24, 1991

Today is a day I remember well. I was 16 years old and an avid Star Trek fan. It was one of those moments that we all have... knowing exactly where we were when we learn of something tragic. Some time, late in the evening of October 24th, 1991, I was incessantly flipping cable channels until I stumbled upon a news story about Gene.
