Reading comprehension not your thing? Fear not because a Korean company named Unichal has developed a tiny scanner that can capture an image of troublesome words and then relay them back to the PC. Once there, the included software will automatically apply the term to Wikipedia, Google, or a dictionary of your choosing to aid in your understanding. A gadget like this could definitely be useful—especially for someone learning a second language. Plus, at around $90, it's not going to break the bank. A video of the Dixau in action is available after the break.
I can see this being infinitely useful when studying a foreign language. I've spent so much time in my day copying down a word (often incorrectly) and then looking it up online, or fishing through a dictionary.. or worse, trying to flip-flop to the back of the book to the vocab list.
