Universal Language

I picked up where pictograms left off. By rethinking a symbol based language, I apply it to communication for specifically travel situations. With an index of symbols, basic questions can be asked, and basic answers can be provided by anyone else in any language. It started with research on customs which transcended language barriers. For example, clock positions are universal, therefore can be used to communicate specific times. With an add on keyboard app, these symbols can be typed out anywhere to form enough questions and sentences to get by in any country.
