The translator Langogo Genesis is the result of an Indiegogo campaign that significantly exceeded the original funding target. Originally, 9,000 US dollars were earmarked for financing, but in the end the project received an impressive 154,000 US dollars from just over 1,000 people.
The financing was completed at the end of November 2018, and the backers received their equipment shortly afterwards. Meanwhile the Langogo Genesis is also available on the open market, it is sold via Amazon and currently costs € 245.65.
According to Langogo, the Genesis should be an “AI translator” using a neural network for the translation. In addition, the device is equipped with speech recognition, which automatically recognizes the various supported languages, translates them and outputs the translated text via speech output. According to Langogo, the Genesis currently supports over 70 languages.
Scope of Delivery
The Langogo Genesis comes in a plain white cardboard box. Inside, next to the translator itself, there is a key for the SIM compartment, instructions, a bracelet for attaching the translator and a short USB charging cable. A charger is not included.
