Turnstyle Talks: Word Lens iPhone App

on Thursday, Mar. 3rd

Word Lens is an innovative iPhone app that translates languages in real-time by actually replacing the text being seen through the camera’s phone with the translated text in the same color and font as the original.
Wired magazine has called the app one of the “most amazing” they have ever seen, and in this edition of Turnstyle Talks, we hear from Word Lens co-creator John DeWeese about how they were able to put together the app and how he sees it being used in the future.
