How cool is this? We don't post a lot of iPhone apps, because so many people do not have iPhones (myself for one). However, this is the first app I've seen that actually makes me want an iPhone (not that I'm going to buy one). The Word Lens app is a free download, but the dictionaries are $5 each. So far, English to Spanish and Spanish to English are the only dictionaries available. It works with short phrases like signs, not with large blocks of text, like books. Link -via reddit

Good thing. This is neatorama not drooling fanboy dorkorama. Leave the incessant fanboy crap to BoingBoing.

I bought this thing, and while cool & mind-boggling - it needs more work work. The words refresh in correctly about 10x a second.

The video is studio magic, but, think of all the downloads! I hope it gets continuous improvement, such a great concept.
