Imagine a world without language barriers. This could be closer to reality than we think, according to brilliant start-up Waverly Labs.
Their genius device, the Pilot, is the world’s first smart earpiece which, according to the website, has the ability to translate between users speaking different languages.
The device, available in three colours, will revolutionise the way we communicate with others, as well as completely change the way we are able to travel.
While the device may sounds similar to fans of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, this is the first time a real life Babel fish has been made available to the general public.
The earpiece will retail for $299 and will include a second earpiece, which will be connected to an mobile app allowing the user to toggle between languages.
Additional download packs will be available to allow the device access to various languages.
The device is available to pre-order now, but both the app and the device won’t be available for purchase as a complete package until 2017.
We think it’s well worth the wait.
