Google's Babelfish

Translation seems to be an area of innovation at the moment, through mobile apps.  Quest Visual launched their app Word Lens just before Christmas, and now Google have updated their Translate app.

Google's update means that the app translates speech, as speech - so you talk to it, and it comes out with the same phrase in another language, or it listens to a phrase and repeats it in your own language.  It only dies English and Spanish at the moment, and it seems buggy as anything, but give it a few months and we could get something truly essential for travelers.
