This Earpiece Translates Foreign Languages In Real Time

Published 4 years ago

Have you ever wondered how cool it would be if everybody spoke the same language? Well, Waverly Labs is trying to make this a reality with their new in-ear device called The Pilot.

When it launches in September, it should allow you to instantly understand a foreign language by softly whispering the translation directly into your ear. It works in tandem with the smartphone app that will allow you to switch between French, Spanish, Italian, and English languages on the fly.

Whether it works as promised remains to be seen, but what gets us excited is that the gadgets that once existed only in the realm of sci-fi movies might actually become reality soon. The future is now!

It will retail for $129 and you can pre-order yours here.
