Music & Audio
The Pilot translating earpieces are ideal for streaming music,
but can also be used as your phone personal assistant including voice calls and audio notifications
The Pilot translating earpiece can be shared with someone else to translate different languages using the Pilot app
The Way It Works
Using designed noise-canceling microphones, the Pilot earpiece filters out ambient noise from the speech of someone talking
The translation process occurs using speech recognition, machine translation and machine learning as well as speech synthesis technologies
The second earpiece returns the translation. This all happens simultaneously without interruption, as each person speaks to one another
Anyone with a Pilot Translating Earpiece can join in a group conversation in different languages using the Pilot app
Pre-orders of the Pilot Translating Earpieces come with free access to latin/romance languages (French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, along with English). Users can purchase additional languages this fall, including Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, German, Greek, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Turkish, and more!
Pilot Translation Kit
The Pilot is scheduled to ship in Fall 2017.
Pilot includes a second earpiece (such as for wireless music streaming), a battery charger (for additional charges on the go) and an accompanying app that toggles between languages.
Pilot is currently available for pre-order at $249 USD, and will include the following selected languages: French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, along with English. Additional languages will be available for purchase by language groups.
We are first introducing latin/romance languages (French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, along with English) and will begin adding additional languages this fall, including Germanic, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Slavic and East Asian.
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.
If someone does not wish to wear the second earpiece, you can use the smartphone app which is included as the app can be used on speaker mode.
Currently the translation only takes a couple of seconds of delay however, we are working very hard to get this lag shorter and we will release updates of the app with every improvement.
No, machine translation is not perfect and it will make mistakes sometimes, but the more people use it the better the translation engine becomes.
We are also developing an offline version so that you can use it while traveling overseas without a data connection, but it will not be released in the first version of Pilot.
Every language has various dialects and the earpiece is designed to translate common dialects, although thick accents could disrupt this and cause improper translations.
We plan to invite a select group to become beta testers, based on certain factors, including language spoken, location, and use cases. We’ll be sending a notice later this summer to allow for beta testing submissions.
