This ear gadget lets you understand foreign languages in real time

Most of us have been in a situation where we needed to communicate with someone who speaks a different language. It can be slow and frustrating when you find yourself unable to communicate your thoughts or needs. You might try to combat the problem by learning a new language, but this can take many years to master, which is no good if you need to be understood right now.

This is where a new company called Waverly Labs steps in. They have created a simple, brilliant and potentially groundbreaking device that lets you wear an earpiece which translates, in real-time, directly into your ear as you listen, genius!

The Pilot is a gadget made up of two earpieces that fit easily into your ears. They wear a bit like cordless, in-ear headphones. You wear one, and the person you are speaking to wears the other.

They translate in real-time in French, Spanish, Italian and English.

‘The Pilot’ hit the shelves in September and cost $129.

You control the earpieces via the handy app which allows you to switch between the languages.

Here’s a video showing how it works:
