iPhone translation app speaks 3 languages with your mouth, just hold it in front… oh, just watch

“Somewhere on the App Store spectrum, between the travel phrasebooks and those apps that replace your mouth with a slightly weirder mouth, you’ll find iLingual, an app that steals your lips, and uses them to speak three different languages,” John Herrman reports for Gizmodo.

“Here’s how it works: you snap a picture of a mouth—yours, your girlfriend’s, or just a photo from a magazine—which iLingual then analyzes and converts for animation,” Herrman reports. “Then, you choose a phrase from the app’s 400-strong library, hold your iPhone over your mouth and…”

  1. I’m so glad it comes in Arabic. Now they can use the iPhone (a device made by “infidels” by the way) to yell “Allah Akbar”, just as they’re about to murder lots of innocent people.

    Muslims are every bit the modern day Nazis, except without a bath.

    You should take a trip to the average mall in Southern California and you’ll be practically tripping over hot American women. And unlike French women, they don’t smell like cigarette smoke and aged cheese. Plus which, they don’t have hairy armpits and legs.

  3. @ Josh…
    I would have to say that you have not really been out in the world very much.

    Every country has its hags and hotties… Just the reality of PERCEIVED beauty.

    Come to any beach in Australia and you will see either. But a hottie to you may just be a hag to someone else.

    Oh, and by the way, if you happen to look around – the USA model of how life should be isn’t working too well.

    I have met elegant and desirable women from many countries of the world – none smelled of cigarettes, cheese (all cheese is aged), body odour, and have bradded armpit and leg hair.

    Your Faux Gnus prejudices are showing!

    As for the topic… I just downloaded them and I will give them a true test.. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />
