THE APP THAT WILL CHANGE TRAVEL

Word Lens

Word Lens. An app that translates foreign languages through the camera on your mobile phone. Seriously amazing. While this technology still blows my mind, apparently not all the bugs have been worked out. For one, it costs $5 and you only get Spanish to English. Oh, BTW if you want English to Spanish you have to pay another $5. More importantly, the translations are not quite as seamless as the video below indicates. Light and other “noise” prevent this app from accurately translating which could lead to more confusion than your own common sense could translate.

    That is true that it takes all the fun out of the language barrier. I like attempting to learn a bit of a new language before I travel to a country!

  • I’ve had this for a week or so now, it does work pretty well but so far it only has Spanish! And each language is a paid addon, so it could get costly if you get around!

    Besides which, this takes ALL the fun out of the written language barrier!

    Insanely cool, yes. Revolutionary? Maybe not!
