CES 2019: A first look at the cool tech of CES Unveiled

Waverly Pilot Smart Earbuds

Waverly Labs Pilot Smart Earbuds can be used as wireless earbuds, a Bluetooth headset, or a language translator in "Converse/Listen Mode." The earbuds listen to nearby speakers and instantly translates their speech into one of 15 different languages via the free Pilot Speech Translator companion app. To have a one-on-one conversation, users each insert one earpiece, speak as they naturally would, and the earbuds relay the translated messages. The companion app also transcribes the conversation in the user's preferred language.
