BoredPanda brings to attention a device by Waverly Labs called The Pilot. The gizmo, which fits in the ear, is capable of doing real-time translations between French, Spanish, Italian, and English.

[...] When it hits the shelves in September, the system will allow the wearer to understand one of several foreign languages through real-time in-ear translation. A handy app will allow you to toggle through the languages you want, and the selection includes French, Spanish, Italian, and English. It’ll retail for $129, and you can pre-order one here. Or you can just keep talking to people really loudly and slowly in English. Good luck with that.
