If you’re someone who isolates his or her travels to English-speaking destinations only, your world may have just opened up. If the only thing stopping you from seeing Versailles is not being able to speak French, there’s a solution. Pilot, a smart earpiece language translator, uses the latest in speech recognition technology to clearly understand other languages
The Pilot translating earpiece translates between users speaking different languages.With a specially designed dual noise-canceling microphone and a powerful app, Waverly designed an innovative device that uses machine translation and speech synthesis to translate languages between people.
Pilot’s smartphone app, for example, has a conference mode that allows multiple people to wear the earpiece and join in on the same conversation, no matter if you’re speaking Portuguese or Italian. By tapping into your speakerphone, you can easily communicate with everyone in your business meeting whether they’re in Madrid or Rome.
Waverly Labs, when creating Pilot, made sure to keep comfort at the forefront of their earpiece design. From three different sized ear tips to three distinct color choices, Pilot made sure its earpieces were fashionable and at the same time, ergonomic.
Pilot consists of two earpieces – one for you to understand who you’re talking to, and one for them so they can understand you. The earpieces connect with an app on a smart device, which handles the translation with only a few seconds of delay. “This little wearable uses translation technology to allow two people to speak different languages but still clearly understand each other
to reduce the lag time between speech and translation and create a more seamless and personal experience than might occur using other, written translation apps. When the earpieces are not being used for conversation, they can be used to stream music and the system has been designed to work offline to avoid any potentially crippling roaming costs.
