Fuji Xerox's Translating Photocopier
Fuji Xerox is showing off this prototype photocopier that can translate text from scanned pages on the fly. The unit translates from one language to another while maintaining the original layout of the page, including paragraphs and illustrations.
Machine translation tends to be a mess in the best cases, so while it's a clever trick, it won't ever be more useful than equivalent software solutions.
