World’s First Wearable Translator

By Rositta Liosi – EMTV Online


The ‘ILI’ is a real time translation device that is said to be the world’s first wearable translator.

The developers, Logbar, announced the release of the device at the 2016 International Consumer Electronics Show.

The device is small and light enough to be worn around the neck making it easy for globetrotters to use whilst travelling. It also does not require Wi-Fi, 3G/4G or other internet connection thus making it a more convenient translation platform.

There is a built-in translation engine within the device which does all the hard work, working at the same time with a speech synthesis chipset that allows the user to recite a sentence or a word which needs to be translated and the device repeats to the user what is required in the translated language.

At present the ILI only has translations in English, Japanese and Chinese, and Logbar has plans to expand with a second generation model that will include translations for French, Thai and Korean.

There are also further plans for the third model to deliver Spanish, Italian, and Arabic options.
