TicPods 2 integrates Mobvoi's voice recognition and NLP technologies to act as a virtual assistant. Users can use TicPods 2 to take and check notes by voice, such as to check their schedule or parking spot. When paired with a smartphone, the product offers real-time translation between Chinese and 19 foreign languages, in which TicPods 2 and the smartphone are the input channels of Chinese and the foreign language, respectively. Though TicPods 2 only serves Mandarin-speaking users and its translation accuracy is still unproven, clients should pay close attention to this product launch, as it signals that more wearables and consumer devices have potential to become the user interface as long as they have human-machine interaction abilities.
