Google Goggles as OCR Translator

Remeber Google Goggles, the image recognition service provided by Google?

Well, as I suspected, it was only a taste of what you'll soon be able to do with it. How about using it as a text translation tool?

Just snap a picture of a menu or any other text, and have it instantly translated into your own language.

For now, it's only an experimental tool, and only works for german-to-english translations, but it's only a matter of time until we'll all be able to use it with many more languages whenever the need arises.
