Link: Hands-on with Ray-Ban Meta's new AI translation feature, which is too rudimentary and buggy to be anything more than a novelty (Kate Knibbs/Wired)

To use the AI translation, a glasses-wearer needs to say the following magic words: “Hey Meta, look at …” and then ask it to translate what it’s looking at.
