The magical Word Lens app translates text visually with optical character recognition using just a smartphone and its camera.
The app can also spell words in reverse or even erase words from a picture. The translation isn’t perfect, but it sure is an innovative and easy way to translate foreign text. Currently only two language packs exist -- Spanish to English and English to Spanish -- but you can bet that this app will definitely take off with traveling tourists in foreign countries.
