Probably The Oddest Thing In The Universe

Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fans rejoice- the Babel fish lives!

Well, not exactly. It isn’t really a fish that nourishes itself on all unconscious mental frequencies, but it is a language translator that nests in your ear and works in real time.

Now if ever there was a sign that we are really living in the future it’s being able to converse with someone who is speaking a different language and being able to hear it in your native tongue.

Barely comprehensible, isn’t it? The original Babel fish was described as "probably the oddest thing in the universe" and I'm inclined to agree. It feels almost like I’ve got real life confused with an episode of Star Trek, but I haven’t. Honest.

Do you know the best thing about this nifty little gadget? It’s the reason why it exists. It was created by a man who had met a French girl and wanted to be able to talk to her freely and easily. Creation through a desire to connect! Technology is beautiful.

Unlike Douglas Adam’s Babel fish which “by effectively removing all barriers to communication between different races and cultures, has caused more and bloodier wars than anything else in the history of creation”, Waverly Lab’s Pilot can make us hopeful that our desire to communicate and problem solve with create a more collaborative & creative world and we want to work with you!
