CES 2016: ili is a wearable real-time translator for tourists
Travelling to a country where you don't speak the language can be a daunting experience, but Japanese start-up Logbar is hoping to remedy this with a wearable real-time translator dubbed ili.
ili is a white, flash drive-like pendant designed to be worn around the neck. Boasting a minimal aesthetic, users simply press ili's single button and start talking to initiate translation.
A Logbar spokesperson told CyberShack that ili is predominantly built for tourists, and as such, is preloaded with a dictionary of common words, phrases and sentences that tourists might need. "Where is the nearest train station", "how do I get to Toyko", and "how much is this coffee", for example.
