My mind is seriously blown by this app. The folks over at Quest Visual released an iPhone app called Word Lens and all I can say is wow. The app instantly translates text real time and all you need is your iPhone and the app. The phone doesn’t need to be connected to the internet for it to work. All you have to do is just place the phone over the text and BOOM it works.
This just amazes me as I have done many translation projects and having a tool like this is just fucking amazing! Unfortunately, being the poor fat ass that I am, I am not able to play around with this app, but if you would like to check this app out, head on over to iTunes and download it.
While the app only translate Spanish to English and vice versa, I can only imagine the magic it will use when it comes to Japanese or Russian in the future. Seriously, check the video out and see if this doesn’t blow your mind like it has with mine.
