Since we are on the subject of language translation and artificial intelligence programs, what about the concept of a universal translator? Check out this little device that is the brain child of Waverly Labs. It is call the “Pilot” and it is an earbud that will also let your hear your music streaming or regular phone calls but using an app will allow you to understand foreign languages and speak back to your audience in that language!
Sounds too good to be true right? Well the Waverly Labs app using translation software and speech synthesis, actually claims to be able to do this! It looks like they are sold out on the first orders but are now taking order for the next one.
I will try to get a set to review and see how this universal translator works in the real world.
Pre-orders of the Pilot Translating Earpieces come with free access to latin/romance languages (French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, along with English). Users can purchase additional languages this fall, including Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, German, Greek, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, and Turkish.
Fifteen different languages so far for the universal translator the Pilot.
