INTRODUCTION TO THE WORK
WT2 is a real-time, in-ear translator for natural and hands-free communication, including two earphone translators, an app, and a customized charging case. When you're traveling or living abroad, wear it and start communicating like a local. Each person wears one earphone - you speak in your language, while they hear in theirs. WT2 is the world's first "1+2" translation system (one app controlling two earphone translators) building wireless communication technology, intelligent algorithms, voice translation, and many other technologies into one seamless package. By using "1+2", one can easily talk with anyone, regardless of the spoken language, and with no awkward setup steps.
INTRODUCTION TO THE DESIGNER
Shenzhen Timekettle Technologies Co., Ltd. was founded at the end of 2016. With the concept of user value first, the company is determined to solve various problems faced by people when communicating in foreign languages through the combination of artificial intelligence and hardware technology. In just one year, the team has broken through a number of technical bottlenecks, obtained a series of domestic and international patents, and successfully developed the first generation of its own branded product, the WT2 Real-time Earphone Translator. This is the world's first translation product with a 1+2 translation system, which is expected to enter the market in 2018. We believe that "artificial intelligence + hardware" will provide consumers and businesses with a richer travel experience and more efficient communication.
