Alfred is the only companion you’ll need for your next trip
An interesting device for those that like to travel alone.
Traveling alone is one of those experiences that no one forgets and everyone who does it recommends. It is a type of journey completely different from the more traditional ones, even if virtually everyone feels insecure about traveling alone – especially if your plans involve going to another country and getting to know another culture.
It is not exactly a leap in the void, but sometimes it may seem like it. Different languages, unknown places, and sometimes, no easy way to connect to the Internet are problems that every traveler face, but that may now be a thing of the past with a new handheld device that promises to revolutionize traveling, especially solo travel.
This device, called Alfred, wants to solve the biggest problems that people traveling on their own usually face. It is an all-in-one travel pocket gadget, which is capable of providing translations in 108 languages, works as a virtual guide, and is able to provide the user with unlimited mobile data.
Other similar devices or services exist but, given that they rely on the user having access to an Internet connection, they are not always reliable – as all travelers know internet connections are sometimes hard to come by. Alfred provides access to unlimited data for as low as $0.02 per day, a value that varies according to the country but never tops $1.10.
Founder Billy Chan breaks down Alfred’s strongest points and features:
Pretty much everyone loves to travel, but there are so many things that could ruin the journey – getting lost, not being understood, and being disconnected can cause a lot of problems for a traveler. That is why we came up with an idea to solve all those problems in just one device, that you can count on being connected anywhere as well – that is how Alfred was born, and we think people who love to travel will love him!
There is currently a Kickstarter campaign going on for Alfred, which has at this time already surpassed the initial target of $12,745. With over 30 days to go in the campaign, there is still the chance to get Alfred for a discounted price (around $203), so be sure to grab yours in order to make your next solo travel easier to handle.
