It was only a matter of time before face masks became high-tech.

高科技口罩的出现只是时间问题。

Japanese company Donut Robotics has developed a face mask with "smart" capabilities, including the ability to translate what the wearer is saying into eight different languages.

日本公司“甜甜圈机器人”研发出了一种智能口罩,可以将佩戴者说的话翻译成8种不同语言。

The C-FACE Smart Mask still protects from the spread of COVID-19, but can also translate the wearer's speech from Japanese into Vietnamese, English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Thai, Indonesian, and French.

这款名为C-FACE的智能口罩不但可以用来防护新冠病毒,而且可以将佩戴者说的话从日语翻译成越南语、英语、西班牙语、汉语、韩语、泰语、印尼语和法语。

It works by connecting to a smartphone app via Bluetooth to translate the words into text messages and can also dictate speech and make calls.

这款口罩通过蓝牙和智能手机应用连接,将文字翻译成文本信息,还可以语音听写和打电话。

Taisuke Ono, chief executive of Donut Robotics, said, "We worked hard for years to develop a robot and we have used that technology to create a product that responds to how the coronavirus has reshaped society."

甜甜圈机器人公司的首席执行官大野大介说:“经过多年的努力,我们研发出了一款机器人,我们运用该技术发明了一款可以应对疫情后社会形势的产品。”

The white plastic face mask was developed as the company searched for a product to help them survive the pandemic. When the pandemic struck Donut Robotics had finalized a deal to supply robot guides and translators to Tokyo's Haneda Airport, but this deal remains up in the air.

该公司在寻找一款可以助其渡过疫情难关的产品,于是就研发了这款白色塑料口罩。当疫情来袭时,甜甜圈机器人公司已经达成了一笔为东京羽田机场供应机器人向导和翻译的交易,但目前这一交易还未落实。

Estimated to cost $40 per mask, the first 5,000 masks will be available to Japanese buyers in September before expanding to China, the US, and Europe, too.

这款口罩单价预计是40美元(约合人民币280元),首批5000个口罩将于九月份在日本上市,然后再推向中国、美国和欧洲市场。
