Unique In-Ear Device Translates Foreign Languages in Real Time


More than likely, you have found yourself in a rather awkward position when you’re trying to communicate with somebody who speaks a foreign language. It can sometimes be amusing but at times, it can also be embarrassing. Thanks to a new device that fits in the ear and is able to translate language easily, those days may quickly become a thing of the past.

The device was designed by Waverley Labs and is known as The Pilot System. It is due to be out to the public in September, and anybody who wears it will be able to understand one of several different foreign languages through real-time translation. You can use an app to toggle between the different languages. The current selection for languages includes Spanish, Italian, French and English.

This device is rather affordable, with a retail value of $129. You can preorder this device on their website.
