Ever find your self in a foreign country, trying for the life of you to explain to the locals that you desperately need to go to the bathroom… and he hands you a chicken!
Well fear noe more, ICONSPEAK World is here.
The brainchild of three world explorers; George, Steven and Florian. In their own words;
Simplicity was always a trait that unites us in many forms, call it lazy or genius, but we like to keep it simple. And hence follows our starting point of how to bridge the language barriers of our world: a shirt. Through a shirt you can – in the most rudimentary ways – combine gestures, vocals and mimics to create interaction. A shirt does not need to be recharged and still, you can have it on as long as you please. Furthermore you won’t have to worry that we will send you software updates to your shirt which will make it uncomfortable to wear, slow to wash or any such thing. It’s a shirt. This is where we start, but not where we will stop – the challenges on our way to bridge the language barriers of our world are manifold and will lead us to platforms and mediums other than textile as well…
So in short, if you are travelling abroad and don’t want to find yourself in a situation where your language and signing skills will get you want and need… Head on over to ICONSPEAK World and grab yourself a wearable translator today.
