Got it in the Bag
Weekend bags are standard gear for the jet-setting life, but there’s not much standard about this garment bag/duffle bag combo
from Hook & Albert.
This Garment Weekender begins as a duffle, but can be entirely unzipped to reveal a garment bag. That garment bag can hold two suits, and once the bag gets zipped back into its duffle state, it has a pocket on either side for a pair of shoes and more clothing can be packed into the center.
An in-ear translator
Blank stares in the face of foreign languages will soon be a thing of the past. Designed to pair with its Pixel phone, Google’s new Bluetooth Pixel Buds headphones
offer a real-time translation feature that’s like an on-hand personal interpreter.
A touch of the right ear bud activates Google Assistant on the phone, and the user can say, “Google, help me speak Mandarin.”
All it takes from there is talking into the phone in English and the app will transcribe the sentence in Chinese and say it out loud. The Chinese speaker in the conversation can also talk into the phone and the buds will translate that back to English. There are 40 languages that this whole exchange could work with.
It’s perfect for those moments when the food menu’s all in unrecognizable characters and no one speaks your language.
