Word Lens is an augmented reality translation application from Quest Visual. Word Lens uses the built-in cameras on smartphones and similar devices to quickly scan and identify foreign text (such as that found in a sign or a menu), and then translate and display the words in another language on the device’s display. The words are displayed in the original context on the original background, and the translation is performed in real-time without connection to the internet. For example, using the viewfinder of a camera to show a shop sign on a smartphone’s display will result in a real-time image of the shop sign being displayed, but the words shown on the sign will be the translated words instead of the original foreign words.

Google’s Big Bet on the Future of UI: Gadgets That Predict Your Needs

Android Wear, its OS for smartwatches and Google Glass, won’t be some simplified version of a smartphone UI. Rather, it will be a new kind of beast, whose core experience is lifted heavily from Google Now. The Android Wear UX won’t be a bunch of app icons arrayed on a screen; rather, it’ll be a series of cards, each of which is triggered by whatever you might be doing in the moment.

Human data shows how we move in cities.

Human helps people move almost twice as much in six weeks. Every day, people track millions of activities with our app. We visualized 7.5 Million miles of activity in major cities all across the globe to get an insight into Human activity. Walking, running, cycling, and motorized transportation data tell us different stories.

Boston Is Getting Solar-Powered Park Benches That Charge Your Devices

No longer should we have to beg a block’s worth of bartenders to let us charge our dead phones. What if USB outlets were treated like public property instead?

Thanks to a trio of hardware designers and engineers who generated the idea at the MIT Media Lab, Boston is now turning to cute benches that can charge mobile devices. With 10 already installed in parks across the city in a pilot project, the solar-powered “Soofas” mark a new milestone in smart urban furniture.
