Waygo is the start of a real-time computer vision platform on mobile devices. The first platform product is a suite of translation apps. Using optical character recognition (OCR), your phone camera can be used to instantly translate text without an internet connection, tackling the language barriers that can hold you back during a business or leisure trip in a foreign country.
The first Waygo app is for Chinese to English translation and is available in the app store. We have patent-pending technology and will add more languages in the coming months.
