A Visual Google

GoogleImagine doing a search using a picture taken from your camera enabled cell phone. Does it sound too good to be true? Hatmut Neven doesn’t think so. He is currently working on a way to make this happen. Image-recognition software is already being tested for used in various tasks. Using that technology he hopes to make it happen. The following is a quote of what this service could do for you:

”You take a picture of something, send it to our servers, and we either provide you with more information or link you to the place that will. Let’s say you’re standing in front of the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. You take a snapshot with your camera phone and instantly receive an audio-visual narrative about the painting. Then you step out of the Louvre and see a cafe. Should you go in? Take a shot from the other side of the street and a restaurant guide will appear on your phone. You sit down inside, but perhaps your French is a little rusty. You take a picture of the menu and a dictionary comes up to translate.”

The concepts and ideas Google’s development team is coming up with is astounding. It will probably take awhile to perfect this one though. The idea is great, and if they can pull it off, then they are pretty much going to get that much closer to taking over the world. Another idea I heard Google is trying to do is to have a way to scan bar codes via cell phone, which would allow consumers to find out more info on tha tparticular product, or do price comparisons with other stores. Pretty snazzy in my opinion.
