Google goggles

Well, almost. If this thing works the way it is supposed to work that is. 

Babelfish, if you recall is part of H2G2 - a fish which you insert in your ear to get instant translation of any language spoken around you. The Google goggles allows you to do the same by pointing your phone camera to text and then, zap, you get a translation of the text in question...

This is really smart - especially if one can start making it work in places like India. You can read those signboards in any language. Is this the end of being ripped off in tourist destinations?
