New York-based startup Waverly Labs has developed a pair of wireless earbuds that knocks down language barriers by providing real time translation that lets two persons communicate without the knowledge of a common language.

As many as eight earpieces can be connected in a group and can come handy in humanitarian operations on foreign soils, writes Seeker. The technology is based on machine learning and uses the company’s Pilot app.

A similar product, which translates 40 languages in real time, was unveiled by German startup, Bragi, earlier in July, notes Wired.
