Google is Eliminating the need for human translators one step at a time

Google released a video of a prototype project they are working on involving Google Goggles.

Basically what the app does is uses your phone to take a picture of some text somewhere, and it sends that image to the google servers which analyze the image and grab all the text, then the data is sent to their translation server, all within a fraction of a second.

In the video a Google Employee, uses the product on a German restaurant's menu. instantly the Words are translated to English and you can order what you want off the menu :)
