We discussed Google’s visual search application for Android phones, called “Goggles”. Using Goggles, I was able to take a picture of several items. Goggles recognized each of the items and successfully initiated Google searches for web pages related to the items.
Some of the items I tried were:
- The Temple T
- A ukiyo-e print in our house of Kinkaku-ji (the Gold Pavilion) in Kyoto
- The Eiffel Tower
Here’s a video from Google about Goggles.
