Mersiv is a concept designed to revolutionize the way in which we learn languages!
Mersiv utilizes a camera, microphone and headphones to identify and tailor unique micro language lessons directly reliant to the user in that moment, transforming the world around them into an immersive language lesson. As the wearer is walking, everyday objects are recognized by the camera and identified in both the user’s native language and the language being learned. Depending on the lesson type, Mersiv will also give context to the object by teaching full sentences. The pendant design perfectly positions it to accurately and unobtrusively capture images from the user’s point of view. The 140 degree wide angle lens periodically captures images, which Mersiv uses to generate the personalized micro language lessons. A built in microphone allows Mersiv to listen, enabling the user to interact with the device through speech. It also identifies words and sounds to help tailor the lessons.
