Google Goggles 1.1 Text Translation feature video

The Google Goggles application for Android has just been updated to version 1.1 with a new cool feature: Text-Translation. I just did a short video demonstration of it, on the HTC Desire, that you can watch below.The feature is really easy to use; just fire up the Goggles application,, use the cropping tool to select the text that you want to capture and snap a picture. If all goes well you will be presented with the option to translate the text in your favorite language. Unfortunately it doesn’t always work, especially when you try to capture more than 2 or 3 sentences, but it’s still a pretty awesome and handy feature if you have an active data connection (yup, it obviously has to use Google’s servers to do all the work just like every other cloud based service). You can grab the application right now in the Android Market.

    Hopefully stuff like that will come to Windows Phone 7 in the future! Looks awesome.
