But this new wearable device, which you can wear around your neck like a necklace, promises to be a great revolution in intercultural communication. We are talking about ili, manufactured by the Japanese company Logbar. It is a voice translator that translates in real time everything that you say or hear. The point of this sleek device is to be an on-the-go translator and allow people to communicate in an easy way regardless of the language they speak.
It allows people to communicate in a simple way, since it uses voice rather than text, and it doesn’t even need internet connection to work. The product launch is expected later this year. Being a Japanese company, the initial languages ??available are Japanese, Chinese and English, but they plan to expand into many other languages in the future.
