If you traveled to foreign countries, you can understand the language barrier’s frustration. Cannot order your favorite dish in the restaurant, get lost in the middle of the city because you cannot understand guidance from local people, and much more. However, you can let all those frustrations and fears behind. With the help of “Pilot“– the first self-translated earphone on the market – you can understand any language in the blink of an eye. If you are a Star Trek fan, then the dream of having your personal Universal Translator gadget finally came true. How does it work? Just make sure people wear their “Pilot like you”. The manufacturer has foreseen this needs, and that’s why “Pilot” comes in a set of two, allowing two persons speaking a different language to communicate and understand each other effortlessly.
According to Waverly Labs, the owner of this break-through technology, “Pilot” is the world first translator gadget able to translate language in real-time. “Pilot” is just a primal version of this technology. In the future, earphones will also be able to translate not only a person’s talk but also sounds in the surrounding environment. Unlike many other translating apps and devices requiring the internet connect to work, “Pilot” is built to work independently, so you do not have to worry about unexpected data charge or not-working-earphone due to poor connection. Besides, just like a traditional earphone, you can use it to listen to music, and its sound is not bad. The first model of “Pilot” only supports some popular languages such as English, French, Spanish or Italian. The producer confirmed that other language packs like East Asian, Arabic or African would soon be available too.This project was successfully funded on Indegogo with over 3.4 million USD, going over the expected fund. You can pre-order it now on Indiegogo at $ 199 with 3 color options. If you are planning on traveling to foreign countries, then this device should be on your buying list!
