Sony showed off a new accessory for its PSP at the Tokyo Game Show that may make ordering food and getting around a foreign country all the easier. The new accessory is called the Talk Man, and you guessed it, its a microphone oriented device. The accessory also includes a piece of software that teaches and translates up to four languages: English, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. A big blue bird (like the one pictured here, is your teacher).

The microphone attaches to the top of the PSP and plugs in via USB. Expect other peripherals for the PSP, including a camera and keyboard.

The accessory is due out in Japan later this year, but there are no plans for a Western release.

Gamespot has some video for the device here.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
