Google Goggles Visual Search

Today at Google’s Search event, Google has launched a new application for Google Android mobile phones that will allow people to search for more information about a famous landmark or work of art simply by taking a photo of that object. The announcement came along with Google Real Time Live search.

Google Goggles can recognise books, tourist attractions, famous paintings and even company logos. Focus your phone’s camera on an object, and Google compares elements of that picture against its database of images and will point you to the relevant results.

What’s more is the Google is able pinpoint the location of the phone user through the GPS software and digital compass built in to many of the phones that run Google’s Android operating system. The company says it can recognise tens of millions of objects and places.

Here’s a demonstration:

Isn’t the Future of Internet,  the  Google?

    Nokia has had this in Point-n-Find for a while, but not available everywhere, nore for my phone (Nokia 5800). Maybe Google will deliver for me before Nokia will.

    They talked about this on CNBC in the show “Inside Google”. It didn't make much sense to me at first but after seeing stuff like taking a picture of a business card or finding out what a place is by just simply pointing the camera while it's on, at the place, that's totally awesome!

    Goggles made a step into the world of visual search. I think they might be using RFID technology. Nothing is predictable until we use it.

    Wow! That is really amazing! Visual search is going to change the way we go about our daily lives. But did you know there's no need to get an android phone to get visual search? It's happening even today.

    That's right, there are search sites that use visual search to get results. Try WebKruz for example. When you search a topic, it will bring up pictures of websites related to them. That way you can sift through your results while being able to see where the link is taking you. Very useful. It makes searching online a lot simpler.
