A World Without Barriers: Revolutionary Automatic Earpiece Translator (Video)
Imagine you could have a conversation in a different language, without even having to learn it? This is what the Pilot of WaverlyLabs is offering. Meeting new people while traveling made easy.
What is the Pilot?
The Pilot is the world’s first translation earpiece. When both people each wear a Pilot earpiece, the smartphone app will use a combination of speech recognition, machine translation and voice synthesis to take someone’s speech and translate to the other person. Everyone in the conversation must wear a Pilot earpiece to translate with each other.
Will it translate everything around me?
NO. This first generation does not translate everything happening around you. It only translates with people who also have the Pilot earpiece. Future generations will be developed to translate everything around you.
What if the other person doesn’t have an earpiece?
If someone does not have an earpiece, they can use the smartphone app which is included. Also, the app can be used as a loudspeaker for conferences
Is the translation perfect?
No, machine translation is not perfect and it will make mistakes sometimes, but the more people use it the better the translation engine becomes.
How much will it cost?
Retail is expected to be $249-$299
How much is the EARLY BIRD?
Early bird will be first come first serve. A limited quantity will go for $129, then another round for $149, and then a few more Late Early Bird options for $179+.
The full package includes the Pilot and secondary earpiece (2 earpieces total), 1 portable charger, and an accompanying app. The app is where the languages are downloaded for the earpiece.

Curious to know how we came up with the idea for a translating earpiece? Well, it’s a silly story really, but you can see the story from the video It’s a clip from our upcoming crowdfunding campaign, which we’ll be launching later this spring. There are additional videos, specifically discuss the technology, how it works, and the team behind it, and we’ll be uploading those over the next few weeks. Hopefully this will tide you over until then.
