Have you experienced difficulties trying to communicate with someone who does not speak the same language as you?
With almost 7000 different types of languages in the world, there are many instances where two people do not have the knowledge of a common language. Especially so when people are travelling. Communication is a vital aspect of the human life and being unable to communicate with one another is frustrating.
When I was in Japan, as I do not know Japanese, it was a little difficult for me to get around and I felt that I missed out on a lot of delicious Japanese cuisines as restaurant menus were written in Japanese.
However, these problems will be a thing of the past with “Pilot”, the world's first smart earpiece language translator. Using speech recognition, machine translation and voice synthesis, this earpiece translates the other party’s speech almost in real time, although it currently has a few seconds of delay.
The Pilot comes in a set of two, one for the other user the user is speaking to. Also, it is accompanied by a smartphone app that enables users to toggle between languages.
Although it currently only supports English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese, the team is currently working to improve developments, by increasing the number of languages supported, reducing the time needed for the translation, and also an offline version so that users are able to utilize Pilot without Internet connection.
With prices starting at USD$199, it’s money well spent to communicate effectively.
