Augmented Humanity is a mega-trend that aims to aid or enhance human behavior. Translating technology falls within this category and several companies at CES have promising solutions.
When two people talk to each other without a common language, another device coupled with a smartphone provides translation to one person via earphone and to the other via transcript (text on display). WT2 Plus is an AI-powered translation system using voice algorithms and machine learning technology. The WT2 Plus device allows for "real-time" natural communication, regardless of language barriers and supports up to 36+ languages with 95% translation accuracy. The device uses a combination of a mobile app and two earphones, with battery life lasting up to 15 hours.
Codie sees the WT2 Plus as the most impressive product in this field: “During the demo the device was connected to a crowded WiFi network and even with the noise from the convention, there was minimal latency. I also had a very accurate conversation with the other person speaking Chinese, while I responded in English.”
