Imagine travelling to your desired destination. Everything is perfect, really. Except that every time when you’re trying to get around somewhere where you don’t speak the language, you’ll end up gesturing wildly to no avail.
Now that technology is advancing at the speed of light, it’s a bit of a relief to know that this could be a thing of the past.
Wearable Translator for Travellers
Introducing this piece of technology called ‘ili’, it will be shaking up your travelling experiences in no time. Made by Japanese company Logbar, it promises to automatically translate sentences in real time. Yeap that’s right! It helps you to translate sentences into the language of your desired choice.
Of course, there are limitations to it. It only works with English, Japanese and Chinese at the moment. However, more languages will be added over time while they’re working at it. Furthermore, no wifi is required! You don’t have to worry about having to work with a bad connection. No wifi and no google? ili will be here to save the day. You can literally use it anywhere and anytime. How convenient!
Just take a look at how impressed people were at the translated voice:
Are you an impatient little twerp? ili works well with your level of instant gratification as well. It has the ability to translate words in as little as 0.2 seconds. 0.2 seconds! That’s really fast. ili can make communication happen without experiencing frustrating delays.
Stuck in the wilderness somewhere? ili lets you translate up to 50,000 words and phrases that will save your life. Its intuitive function allows you to use the device as if you’re communicating directly with the other person.
The good news is that the website is now up and running! However, it will only be set to release in the US in June 2017. Aye, we’ll be ready to grab ours when it’s out. Are you in?
