Translating The Real World In Google

Ordering from a menu in a non-English speaking country will never again, be the same. Today I learned that Google has a new project that appears to provide mobile users with an ability to “scan” images of different text, to then be translated by Google Goggles.

Making Google Googles work is fairly easy. Point your phone at a phrase and from there, Google Goggles can then translate the text into English.

Honestly, this is one of the coolest things Google has come up with a long time. With any luck, this new Google concept works as well as they seems to think it will. Because I’d hate to try this and make myself look foolish.
