From Star Trek to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, one of the signs of the future is a portable device that instantly translates languages. Well, it’s 2019, so we should expect things to feel properly futuristic.

Right on cue, we’ve now got access to an ultra-light, sleek, portable translator. And unlike the Babel fish, you don’t even need to stick it in your ear.

CM Translator offers instant two-way, real-time translation. It takes the form of a pocket-size wand with a single button, so all you need to do is click, hold and talk. When you release the button, you’ll hear the translation. With a battery big enough to last for 180 days of standby time and 24 hours of continuous use, there’s plenty of juice to last you on your trips in unfamiliar places.

The device can translate 42 languages, so you’ll find it useful in approximately 90% of countries around the world. Just a few of the languages are: Arabic, Portuguese, Spanish, Polish, Danish, German, Russian, French, Korean, Czech, Romanian, Malay, Norwegian, Japanese, Swedish, Arabic, Slovenian, Thai, Turkish, Hebrew and Hindi.

Buy now: The CM Translator is available in white or black finishes for $99. That’s 23% off the usual price.
