Three friends have created a t-shirt which can be used to communicate in the global language of symbols. They came up with the idea after realising there was a gaping hole in the way we communicate while travelling abroad. George, Steven, and Florian the founders of IconSpeak had this to say in an interview with Bored Panda
“We thought it would be great to have an essential set of icons with you, permanently, so that you could just point on whatever you need – and people would understand. Soon the notepad was pulled out again and we started listing more or less essential icons that would have been of great help during not just ours, but basically anyone’s trip.”
The T-shirt has a total of 39 icon for all your essential needs from food, transportation, bedding, bathrooms, and weather patterns.
You can find out if the tap you are about to drink from is safe with the drinking water icon. Find a toilet in an emergency with the toilet icon. You can express love for someone you have connected with who speaks a different language with the heart icon. You can even point to the peace sign if you hit some unexpected conflict and hope for the best.
This simple design allows you to communicate simply and while there are thousands of languages are spoken all over the world, most people will get the hint of what you are saying with these pictures.
