After 2-1/2 years of development, QuestVisual has finally launched “Word Lens,” an iPhone app capable of translating signs in real-time. QuestVisualfounder Otavio Good explains, “It tries to find out what the letters are and then looks in the dictionary. Then it draws the words back on the screen in translation. The translation isn’t perfect, but it gets the point across.” I still believe it is black magic.
This.Changes.Everything.Until the next hip app comes along.
Meanwhile, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…when a pop locking Santa hits the streets.
