    Magic or Science?

    "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
    the Pentagon should really get working on Arabic, Dari, and Pashto versions of Word Lens, stat.

    Awesome tech.


    Pentagon: Note;
    I'm the founder of Quest Visual, maker of Word Lens and I figured I'd address some of your points. On the translation quality - it is not perfect. For the first release, we got it to the point where our testers were coming back from foreign countries and telling us it was clearly useful. This is the first step and we will be constantly improving it based on people's feedback. To answer your last questions - If you want to beta test our new stuff, let us know - our email is on our website. I'm a huge fan of The Economist, so I think we could make that happen. :)
