The future is great. For the last couple of millennia, when foreign people met each other, they had absolutely no idea what the other one was talking about. That ended in mistrust, in isolation, often even in war. But those times seem to be gone now. A company called Waverly Labs is developing the world’s first smart earpiece language translator. It uses the latest technologies in speech recognition, machine translation, and wearable tech to allow wearers to converse without language barriers.
“Being lost in translation has happened to everyone while traveling, and that’s how the idea was born,” founder Andrew Ochoa tells us. “Intended for the traveller, international professional, and digital nomad, the Pilot includes a second earpiece for wireless music streaming and a mobile app, which toggles between languages. For us, it’s a dream of a life untethered, free from language barriers.”
Where other smart earpieces in wearable technology are designed for fitness tracking or audio enhancement, Waverly Labs is committed to bridging language barriers. Science fiction has called it many things, but Waverly Labs calls it The Pilot. We’ll see if this smart and small gadget changes the world the way it should change it. Hopefully.
