The Fluentalk Timekettle Fluentalk T1 portable translator is a device you need to have whenever you travel to a foreign country. It helps in emergencies, in general day-to-day activities, and it potentially enables conversations you may never have had in a language completely foreign to you.
This is one of those gadgets that the more I played with it, the more useful it became. Targeted at people who travel, it can help break language barriers and move foreign conversations to the next level. The features and use cases are carefully thought out, from back-and-forth dialogues to getting a real-time translation stream to having core phrasebook phrases at your fingertips (either written or spoken). The small form factor makes it extremely easy to bring with you wherever you go, and the fact that it can do real-time translation with or without a connection makes it essential for travel. There are core offline languages that can be used without connectivity. Or, you can connect via WiFi or cellular, and you get 2 years of free cellular connectivity from when you activate it. This is one of those gadgets you wish you had with you all of the time, and it goes far beyond the functionality found on a smartphone as it is a device dedicated to real-time and accurate translation.
