In the second season of Takei’s Take, host George Takei is visiting countries across the globe, exploring technology and trends that change the way we live and reshape our world. He recently visited Microsoft’s campus and he had opportunity to try out the upcoming Skype real-time translator and more.

Next he checks out The Garage at Microsoft where he meets with Steve Clayton, Jenny Lay-Flurrie and Peter Lee.
George explores Microsoft’s culture of innovation, learns about Skype Translator and the birth of Eye-Gaze, a tracking technology that is helping retired NFL player Steve Gleason speak and even move his wheelchair.
