Solos debuts AirGo 3 Smart Glasses that can translate languages


Solos announced its Solos AirGo3 Smart Glasses that can translate languages in real time.

The smart glasses use the SolosTranslate platform to help break language barriers and foster better conversations across diverse linguistic backgrounds.

The SolosTranslate platform, which has been shown off before, embraces Listen, Group, Text, and Present modes. The platform, powered by Solos’ proprietary software and OpenAI’s ChatGPT, promises to transform international business, travel, and cultural exchange by facilitating swift, efficient, and inclusive communication.

Its operating modes include the Listen Mode. Tailored for one-on-one interactions, this mode captures and translates speech from individuals directly in front of the user. The translated speech is discreetly played back in the user’s preferred language through the smart glasses, ensuring a private and intuitive experience.

And it has Group Mode. Designed for multi-person discussions, this mode allows each participant to converse and listen in their preferred language. Users can effortlessly join or initiate a group discussion via QR code or web link, enhancing versatility and inclusivity across various user preferences.

For Text Mode, SolosTranslate delivers translated messages in written form, enabling users to display translated text for reading or opt for audio playback of translated speech. And in Present Mode, it enables speakers wearing AirGo3 to deliver content in their language, instantly translated in real-time for the audience’s comprehension in their chosen language.

“AirGo3 was designed to continually innovate and adapt to what consumers are demanding. Part of that demand is for a reimagined mobile platform that allows us to communicate digitally, and in real-time, in a hands-free way that feels more natural,” said Kenny Cheung, Solos president, in a statement. “We received a lot of positive feedback on the experience with SolosTranslate when it was launched, and we wanted to expand its capability into a full-service translation platform, able to connect multiple people at one time, regardless of language, over voice or text. This has enormous potential for business, tourism, international conferences, and even emergency services.”

Beyond language translation, the AirGo3 Smart Glasses boast a comprehensive array of features like SolosChat and SolosTranslate powered by ChatGPT. It leverages AI to facilitate natural voice communication through the Solos app, enabling users to perform tasks via voice commands.

The AirGo3 Smart Glasses, equipped with SmartHinge technology and weighing a mere 30 grams, marry the functionality of premium earbuds with fashionable eyewear, the company said.
