Word Lens uses the video camera in your iPhone or iPod Touch to translate Spanish-to-English (or the other way around) in realtime, using augmented reality. That’s right, you take video and Word Lens instantly and automatically replaces the language it sees with the language you want to read — no network connection required. That kind of CGI used to be done by giant server farms in Hollywood during post-production. Now your phone does it for you effortlessly, anywhere.

The future just arrived.
