This has to go down as one of the most useful uses for an Augmented Reality iPhone app! Word Lens will actual translate signage from one language into another, on the fly, without a net connection! If it works even half as well as it does in the video below, it’s a must have for everyone next time they’re traveling abroad! I remember an incident on holiday in France involving a menu, lack of phrase book and sheep brains, where this app would have been really helpful!
