ristst: But will it disprove the existence of God?
bhcompy: Sadly, Yahoo discontinued the Babelfish service sometime in the last 2 years or so. Babelfish.altavista.com was redirected to babelfish.yahoo.com for a number of years after the acquisition

We already have pocket transators but they don't work very well and it's quite painful jamming them into your ear.Specs for a good translator:* fits in you ear* doesn't look dorky* can simultaneously translate both ways, communicating via WiFi or whatever replaces it* lives on ear wax and scurf rather than brain waves* looks like a tiny fish or possibly one of those poisonous octupuses that are about the size of a quarter
I've made it roughly life-sized.
Make the Babelfish look like jewelry and you may not fee so stupid with a fish stuck in your ear.
