The Pilot – The Smart Earpiece Which Translates Languages As You Speak

2 November, 2016

Every once in a while you see a piece of wearable technology which seems to border on “too good to be true” territory. Waverly Labs’ Pilot smart earpiece definitely falls into that category.

While the idea of making a piece of technology which serves as a fast interpreter is hardly new, the idea of making one this portable and able to work from audio does seem to be something pulled out of science fiction. It is nothing less than the real-world creation of the Babel Fish from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Even Star Trek featured larger handheld devices which offered comparable functionality.

As we speak, the Pilot is currently gathering investment on Indiegogo right now. Check it out there or on Waverly Labs’ own website.
