Rev Translator is the world’s first smartphone application that translates “Engine sounds” into human language. (As investigated by Yamaha Motor as of July, 2014) Six translators with different personalities are available on the app. It translates the sound into more than 100 million combinations of lines and shows emotions depending on the engine sound. It even takes into account the time of day and the weather. Users can collect points by using the app and have a chance to win Yamaha motorcycle icons.
