If I need my passport next year to travel, I plan on picking up translator earbuds.

I went to Italy in 1995 and while they do have a lot of English speaking businesses, hotels and restaurants, when I first got there it was a little unsettling not being able to read or speak the language.

There are plenty of new tech products coming for the end of the year so should be a fun Christmas and holiday season.

I hope I live long enough so that the healthcare industry will be able to develop a Star Trek Tricorder device so a doctor can scan you and diagnose the problem.

Can you help us out?
