A Way To Say Goodbye To Language Barriers Forever

Whether you are visiting to Japan, India, France, Africa or any other country from your native one, perhaps the biggest problem that you might face as a tourist is the language barrier. While gestures of some of the basic stuff can get you directions to the nearest hotel or the price of an item, more often than not you are stuck trying to explain the complicated things such as when you need a lot of groceries and you are stuck trying to explain the ingredients in the local language, or when you are engaged in a conversation with a local but can’t understand what they are saying.

And just like you, there are millions of other tourists who face the same problem, perhaps waiting for the day when we can say goodbye to language barriers forever and be able to converse with people without any boundaries. Well, perhaps the age of language restrictions is finally over as the introduction of Pilot: an on-the-fly language translator within a tiny device that has turned many heads since its production has been announced.

At the moment, Pilot only supports real-time translation of French, Italian, Spanish and English but newer languages have been confirmed to be added shortly. Those languages include East Asian, African, Arabic and Slavic language groups, so definitely there’s a lot of scope for improvements in the future.


The device is in the form of a tiny earbud that has to be worn on the ear and it will automatically start converting the one language into another in real-time, without the need of an internet connection, thus creating a really seamless method of communication. Created by waverly labs, the idea was brought into existence by Andrew Ochoa, who immediately felt awkward when he met a French woman and could not communicate with her.

It will be available in three colors: red, black and white. While there is still time in the release of the Pilot earbud, you can book one for yourself by pre ordering one for yourself for $129 by going here: waverlylabs.com
