The gadget will launch to translate between English, French, Spanish and Italian in Autumn of this year. It works by being connected to two different people, speaking two different languages, and translates what they are saying in your ear. The company is going to launch a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, where people who want to be the first to try this new technology can pre-order the Pilot for between $129 (£90) and $179 (£125) – whereas it’s expected to retail for between $250 (£174) and $300 (£209
Skype can now translate between callers who are speaking different languages, and currently caters for seven.
The chief envisioning officer of Microsoft UK has also claimed that in the next five years, we will be able to translate one another from any language to any language with just a smart phone between us.
