Augmented Reality App Instantly Translates Foreign Text On Signs, Menus If you ever wanted to be able to read text on a street sign or on a menu in a restaurant when abroad, your smartphone might be able to help you soon. Japanese electronics company Omron has developed a smartphone application that can instantly translate (short) foreign texts you come across – firing up the app and pointing the phone’s camera at the text in question is enough. Omron says that in its current form, the app (which isn’t available yet) can handle English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. Translations are superimposed over the text shown on the display (in the picture below, you can see three items on a Korean menu shown in yellow Japanese letters). Users aren’t required to take pictures, as translations are delivered based on live images. Omron says their app can also handle text captured in bad lighting conditions or from difficult angles.

Foodie Wants To Help Pick Your Lunch With A Tinder-Like Swipe System Jeonguk Lee and John Kim are hoping a different spin on flipping through food reviews is going to help you decide where to eat for lunch. It’s an app called Foodie, which the pair showed off at the TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2015 hackathon. It shows photos and Yelp reviews of various foods in the area, and users can swipe left and right to save the ones that look good. The goal then is to show how many people in the area also liked what showed up on the app. There are two goals here, Kim says: to figure out what people like to help better make a decision as to where to eat and to figure out what foods and restaurants are hot at the moment. Picking new or the best restaurants, even for lunch with friends, requires slogging through a huge list of reviews on sites like Yelp.
