With Word Lens, there’s no need to carry around cumbersome translation books. Simply point your mobile device at the text you’d like to read and let Word Lens do the translating for you. But how can we make the experience even better?
When Google announced the Glass Explorer Program, we were thrilled by the possibilities. What if you could literally “see the world in your language” without having to even pull out a device or tap on an app?
Today we’re pleased to announce Word Lens for Glass. Simply tell Glass, “ok glass, translate this” and look at the text you’d like translated. We think it’s magical and we hope you do too! Word Lens for Glass will be available later today for all Glass Explorers.
