Our lives are too complicated with not only things that need to be attended and remembered, but also understanding how to do.
Imagine yourself in a place where you are unable to understand what the other person is speaking to you. Not only that how about you have reached a place to do a business deal and you find yourself alien to not only to the people but the language they speak. To top it up, there is nobody you can find who can help in translating your languages. Who has the time to spare or you?
With complexities at its peak and so much happening around every second, how to keep pace with all the things revolving around us with speed.
The challenge is not only to understand the technology but to find out whether there is a technology a gadget or a device that is available for your needs.
Technology helps in solving most of our problems and giving some peace of mind.
One of the phenomenal devices is the Waverly Labs’ Pilot Language Translator is an amazing simple speech translator that enables users to translate the language.
What does it do, would be your next question? This device is an in-ear wearable that translates languages almost in real-time. This earpiece is like an earplug and it translates spoken languages to the wearer.

As of now, the device needs to be connected to the internet to work, although the company plans to develop an offline version. The existing prototype allows two people both wearing the earpiece to have a conversation, but later updates could expand this functionality.
A Pilot can also be used to listen to music wirelessly, which can be shared with the earpiece of a companion.
Pilot translates English, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese, and the company plans to add more languages later.
Another incredible device is SmartHalo. This device is an all in one device that you can attach to your handlebars and it gives you your own personal Navigation, Light, Alarm, Fitness Tracker and Personal Assistant.
This device helps you navigate straight on your handlebar via a halo on the handlebar. It helps you navigate to the safest route in a jiffy.

SmartHalo’s internal motion sensor triggers a loud alarm if someone tampers with your two-wheeler.
It also helps you set fitness goals in the app and SmartHalo will display your progress in real time.
