Word Lens App Offers Real Time Translation

5 years ago, if I told you that you could use your phone's camera to instantly translate from Spanish to English or from English to Spanish, you'd probably think I was crazy. In fact, I probably would've locked myself up on your behalf. But here we are, watching the impossible become insanely cool, as Quest Visual launches their new app for iPhone, aptly named World Lens.

The app starts free, giving you a chance to demo it before you pay 4.99 for the translation upgrades, which allow you to translate directly from the lens of your iPhone camera. 

Here's a video demo:

As you can see, this is amazing technology, and the price is extremely reasonable. Time will tell how well this effort will be received, but it's certainly a great start, and it's more than upped the ante against other developers.
