I've never been one to be the first to jump on technology.  But this looks incredible!  It's an iPhone app that actually translates signs/words/foreign languages just by holding your phone up to it!

Now, it's not perfect...yet. After watching some of the reviews of the product, it looks as if it translates word by word. So because languages don't always mean the same thing word for word, the meaning could get a little lost in translation. But I'm sure it would turn out to be a huge help if you were ever in a foreign country.
The bad news is that it's going to get a whole lot harder to get your kids to do their Spanish homework.
