Use Google Goggles: Use Pictures to Search

Google has introduced a new product called Google Goggles, a giant leap in visual search, wherein you point a camera at an object and Google figures out what it is!

Google Goggles is a visual search app for Android phones. Simply take a picture of an object with your camera phone and Google will recognize the object, and return relevant search results.

To find information about nearby businesses, just point your phone at a store. Goggles will show you the name of the business, using the camera’s GPS and compass.

Techcrunch guys got a live demo from a Google engineer. Watch it.

As the visual search technology improves, it won’t be long before you stop typing search terms and the camera knows what you want to search just by previewing it!
