Google Translate “Beatbox”

No, it isn't a newly-launched product from Google. Google Translate “Beatbox” is actually a discovery Reddit user `harrichr´ posted at the TodayILearned thread. Google Beatbox produces amazing drumbeats when you type combinations of consonants in the translate box and then translate/listen to it in the German language.

Here's how to turn Google Translate into Google Beatbox:
  1. Go to Google Translate
  2. Set the translator to translate German to German
  3. Copy + paste the following into the translate box: pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch
  4. Click “listen”
  5. Be amazed :)
