Google Magnify: Translate Printed Text on the Move

Print Page

When we are surfing online and run into something that’s in a foreign language, we use a translation tool like Google Translate to translate the text into a language we understand. But this is not possible for printed text like a letter or a book.

Designer Anh Nguyen ran into a similar situation and so he came up with an amazing concept: Google Magnify.

Google Magnify would be a small handheld device that works like a magnifying glass. The difference is that instead of magnifying, Google Magnify would translate text for you.

Just point the device over some text and Google Magnify would recognize the text language using Google Translate engine. Then it would translate the text and present to you in real time on the screen. via CREATIVEsession
