New In-Ear Automatic Translation Device

Many outdoors enthusiasts travel around the world, and language barriers can cause hassles. What do you do when you can’t understand someone who’s giving you important information?

Well, there’s a new solution that can help people understand one another even though they speak and understand two different languages. And here’s the best part: It fits right in your ear!

When I first saw this, I thought of a book called The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, in which a wiggly little creature called a Babel Fish was inserted into one’s ear. After it squirmed deep down in there, it happily translated any language into the native language of the “wearer.”

This new in-ear device isn’t quite that versatile, but it’s pretty amazing nonetheless.

It’s called the Pilot, and it consists of two Bluetooth earpieces, which communicate with a smart phone. Spoken words are “heard” and translated to the selected language.

Languages currently listed are English, French, Italian, and Spanish, and you can sign up on an “early bird waitlist” here. Just be warned that after they get your info, they’ll tell you that the free giveaway is ended.

It looks pretty cool, although I wonder if this thing will really fit my ear. And will I want to put one in my ear after someone else has used it? I’m not thinking so.
