I was looking around the internet, and came across this amazing little piece of tech. It’s an earpiece, that connects to your phone with Bluetooth, and can translate speech in real time. The earpiece hears the speech, send it to your phone, translates it, sends it back to your earpiece, then speaks it into your ear.
With this tech, you can have almost real time speech translation. Currently there is a gap of a couple seconds, but the company that creates it is currently trying to get the gap down to zero.
When you buy it, you get 5 languages for free: French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and English. Pretty much every other popular language is available to buy.
This basically hacks the language barrier to pieces. And the best part about the entire thing, is that it costs $250.
Anyone with a smart phone and $250 can have a conversation with basically anyone on earth.
