Now you can travel anywhere and be able to communicate - genius!
The new IconSpeak Global communication tee is SO simple we can't quite believe it didn't exist before now.
Think about it: how easy would it be if you were on holiday in a foreign country and were just able to point to a symbol explaining the message you intend to get across, without uttering a word of failed language?
For example, wouldn't it be helpful to know how to find the nearest toilet, where the airport is, what the time is and where is the best restaurant to grab a bite to eat without having to reach for your phrase book every time?
Thanks to this ingenious T-shirt, all you need to do is point to the symbol that best represents your problem and hope that you can understand the gist of what the person is saying back to you.
Swiss friends George, Steven and Florian who are behind the brand explain on their website: "In the furthest and deepest corners of our world we were repeatedly left with no words, due to our lacking linguistic talents.
"Such situations got us thinking about how to bridge language barriers with utmost simplicity, on a global level. The answer came to us after a remarkable experience in the depths of Vietnamese backcountry. Because with ICONs, you can SPEAK, you can SPEAK to the world."
Of course, the T-shirts don't exactly help you if you want to try and learn the language, nor will they make your travelling pictures look great if you're wearing the same outfit every day - but there will surely be benefits along the way.
