Try it. Try it now
2010 has seen a lot of impressive hi-tech gear releases, but as the year draws to a close, it's Google's translate service that's fast becoming the internet's most talked-about music making tool.
Why? Because it can beatbox. Try it for yourself by going to Google translate and changing the translation options from German to German. Then copy+paste the following into the text field:
pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch
Then press Listen.
This bizarre side-use of Google translate was discovered by a Reddit user by the name of harrichr and word of it is spreading fast. A video by chulini that remixes the beatboxing with YouTube clips is already doing the rounds.
We're sure it won't be the last.
