More than just entertainment, Word Lens basically “looks at any printed text through the iPhone’s camera, reads it, translates between Spanish and English.” Best of all, it’s free and can be downloaded here. Video demonstration after the break.

That’s pretty impressive already – it does it in real time – but it also matches the color, font and perspective of the text, and remaps it onto the image. It’s as if the world itself has been translated.
