According to the company's website, the device will initially be equipped to handle Germanic and Romance languages (like Italian, Spanish, English, and French). That last one is particularly fitting, since Waverly Labs founder Andrew Ochoa came up with the idea for The Pilot after he met a French girl whom he had trouble communicating with.
"It's the dream, you know?" he says in an ad released by the company. "A life untethered, free of language barriers. It's just that it's no longer a dream anymore. It's real."
Eventually, The Pilot will be able to handle Hindi, Slavic, East Asian, and Semitic languages as well. Earpieces, which are being sold in pairs, will go retail between $249 and $299 a pair, can be preordered through Indiegogo starting this spring.
