At a diminutive size, Zero is barely there. Slip it into a streamlined card case, and you can fit it into pockets, wallets, or purses for maximum accessibility. Timekettle developed the smallest 4 microphone array in the world that is only 15mm in diameter. This technology separates voice inputs from 4 different directions, and noise cancellation improves the quality of recognition all-around.

Zero works together with the other device you carry everywhere - your phone. No more charging separately or fiddle with buttons. Zero knows who is speaking and reads aloud in the other language. Enjoy every great conversation, from eye contact, smiles, to fluent translation experience. Leading AI algorithm enables easy conversation even in the most challenging environment. Zero is also smart enough to know when you've started and finished speaking, with our Voice Activity Detection
3 Modes - Everyday Companion
Zero simultaneously recognizes and separates voices from 4 different directions with noise cancellation based on a neural network. A device so powerful and multi-functional for even meetings and interviews, all logs are saved on the phone alone and extract anytime.
Top-notch translation technology has never been so accessible. Simply plug the Zero to your phone, the app will pop up automatically, recognize and translate your sentences to other languages. The text appears on both sides of the screen to help clear up any potential misunderstandings. Enjoy all the little things that make conversations great, like eye contact and smiles.
Zero records and separates the voices of up to 4 speakers simultaneously, so you don't have to worry about who said what. The log will conveniently show who's talking as well as what they said, and you can play it back whenever you want. The microphone array is also set up to cover all angles so that you can just place the Zero on the table and let it do its thing! You can even extract the log, and save it on your phone, or send it via E-mail.
There's nothing worse than worrying whether your handheld device has picked up everything, particularly when you're conducting an interview! Stop going back and listening to the recordings a hundred times over because it's barely audible. Focus on the relationships you're building and forget that there's a tiny device in front of you!
Adaptive Noise Cancellation - based on Microprocessor - Neural Network Algorithm
Zero's microprocessor utilizes adaptive noise cancellation based on a neural network algorithm with each voice input by its direction, so conversations can be recognized and translated accurately. With up to 4 directions and enhance the recognition accuracy by up to 90%.

I followed this on crowd funding, and because it mentioned my native language, Cantonese.
I do not travel abroad much, but my wife wants to learn my dialect of Chinese.
Many apps out there, including google etc only cater for the Mandarin dialect, so for her, this is a difficult task.
I waited for the funding to complete, I followed the updates and notifications, and then eventually a parcel arrived.
It was smaller than I expected, and only requires a USB-C connection and an app to download.
My first tests was basic english to cantonese and back, it worked well. The second test was trialing the Zero with my Mandarin speaking friend, and to our amazement, it translated what I spoke from Cantonese into Mandarin, and her Mandarin into Cantonese with some precision. Truly some smarts under that softwares bonnet.
My wife is now able to test herself using the app and microphone without my having to be there to nag her (or laugh) at her attempts at the language.
Great job, Timekettle!
