magic talker lm-500

Korean outfit Eintech is showing off their new Magic Talker LM-500 "multilingual assistant" and PMP, with a twist. Let's say you're watching that pirated Oscar screener and an unfamiliar word like "Hakuna Matata" appears in the subtitle. This device allows you to "jump" out of the film (presumably pausing the video for later return) and search each of its 28 electronic dictionaries and conversational video clips for a translation before smashing the device in a blind fury of frustration — rendering the MP3 playback, SD card slot, and TV-out useless. Or maybe that's just us.
