In the demonstration video, this week, we see a Vuzix Blade user stepping off an elevator, walking into a business office, and then begin communicating with various workers, using the smartglasses displaying real-time translations
To get the app working, Zoi Meet says its solution u It's own "proprietary voice to text and language translation algorithms." It should also be noted that the founder of Zoi Meet, Nick Yap, founded Travis, a startup that held a crowdfunding campaign last year to nearly $ 300,000 for a pocket translation device. Although the two companies operate separately, according to a Zoi Meet spokesperson, the two startups are at the same time.
"Spoken language is an integral part of communicating and bringing real-time live multilingual transcription services to smart people," said Paul Travers, the CEO of Vuzix, in a statement.
Currently, the Vuzix Blade is still making inroads into the space and is not really on the radar of your average consumer. With Vuzix version of their headset – which would be more fashionable and look like normal glasses – Zoi could have turned into a killer app.
I've been down this road before with several translation apps, so until I get to try it myself, I'll stay hopeful, but guardedly so.
