Word Lens

This is a bit late.

A few weeks ago, everyone was talking about Word Lens, an iPhone app that translates on the fly between written Spanish and English (on signs, labels etc.) through the iPhone video camera. I was really happy to see it because back in the summer, I wrote a story that uses this augmented-reality concept in a similar way. This kind of real-world development makes the technical aspects of the story seem more plausible.
