Nas, known for “NAS DAILY” which has 4.8 million followers on Facebook came to visit us.
Our CEO, Takuro Yoshida interviewed him about how was his experience with ili.
“It’s really really useful especially in country like Japan!”
How did you like ili? Was it useful?
I like it. It’s very easy to use in my hand. It’s useful, it’s very fun to use, and very fun to hold. There are a few bugs where I speak too fast or it doesn’t recognize me very well but, it’s really really useful especially in countries like Japan and China where I have zero clue about the language.
“I get why ili is one way now”
I’m glad you got to experience using ili in Tokyo! Many of our followers ask us about ili’s one-way feature. What do you think about ili’s one-way feature after you used ili?
I get why it’s one way now like it’s just easy, it’s one button, there’s no switching, you get it and then it works. And I think most of the questions you ask with this are basic.
In what kind of situation did you use?
So like, “where do I go”, “how do I buy this”, “where’s the nearest electronic store”, the answers to those are also very basic so you can probably get them with your hand gesture. So maybe a two-way is not needed but it would be nice to sell it as a package.
Do people in Japan speak English?
(Nas uses ili) “Nobody speaks English in Japan.” (laugh) It’s difficult; it’s one of the pain points about Japan, the country is so advanced, so perfect almost, yet they don’t speak English. It’s very sad, so definitely needed in those countries, like China! I am scared to go to China because nobody speaks English. So this (ili) would be helpful in those countries.
How did people in Japan react (to ili)
Almost everybody smiled. It’s like the way to get people to smile. It’s smile-inducing.
“I recommend people to think before talking when using ili”
Would you recommend ili to your friends?
Yes, of course! I made a video about this before too, it’s very useful that it doesn’t need internet and it’s very cool because it’s so easy to use and honestly it looks like an Apple product from the design. I’m a big Apple fan so I really enjoy this.
How would you recommend people to use ili?
Like exactly how I recommend you live your life, think before talking. So like with lli, you think before you talk it should recognize and it should result in a good outcome.
Sounds like you really enjoyed using ili and it helped you a lot!
Yes, it really did! And it has been great to see you again! You are the best Takuro! Keep in touch and we will see each other in the near future:)
Of course! Thank you for the good time Nas!
