Here at Rocktime we do like mobile apps and here's a pretty innovative one! On holiday abroad and your linguistic skills not quite up to scratch? Bust out your iPhone and let Word Lens take a look at it!
Word Lens by Quest Visual works by looking up translations from its built in dictionary and then using augmented reality to translate in real time on the screen, without the need for an internet connection.
Released in late 2010, Word Lens is still pretty young and currently there's only Spanish and English dictionaries and a few kinks that still need sorting out but maybe at some point we'll be seeing additional languages and possibly a port to Android!
