Quicktionary 2: A Tricorder for language & your path to Otaku knowledge

Imagine a Star Trek-like Tricorder for scary looking foreign languages (like Japanese, for example) and you'll have a pretty good idea of what the Quicktionary 2 Kanji Reader brings to the table. The device allows the user to scan kanji characters in a book or magazine and receive a translation of the characters in a mere 2 seconds. Perfect for Japanese users rusty on their kanji as well as English speakers studying the language, the device can render its translations as text on its built-in screen or via audio from an included speaker. The Quicktionary 2 Kanji Reader is set to make its debut April 10 for 36,750 yen ($368) here.
