Imagine a situation – you are seeing a thing that you don’t know anything about, say for example a restaurant menu in some foreign language or a historical monument but you know very little about it or a painting and you can’t even search it on Google because you can’t describe it in words than you think there needs to be a device which instantly get you all the information you need just in time when you seeing it.
It might be very futuristic like that of a sci-fi movie but Google Goggle is a new app (although a prototype) that lets you use pictures taken with your mobile phone to search the web, no need to type or speak your query all you have to do is open the app, take a picture, and wait for your search results. The best thing is its translation feature that translates the texts in picture taken into any desired language you want, right now this technology only works for German to English translations.
However, the Google Goggle is available to just Android enabled smart phones with auto focus feature and QVGA screen available in Android market also the smart app is in its early stage infact its the first prototype Google showcased in Mobile World Congress, Barcelona and Google is still keeping it in their experimental labs.
