Google goggles has been around for a while now but is an interesting and inventive little app for Android phones.
Google Goggles is a visual search app, meaning that the user takes a photo rather than entering words and the app attempts to return the relevant results.
If this wasn’t interesting enough, Google Goggles has also updated the app to work as a translator, great news for us travellers. For example if you are in a restaurant in some far away country and you can’t understand the menu, simply take a photo and the app will translate the text.
Google Goggles can be used to search the following: text, landmarks, books, contact info, artwork, places, wine and logos.
The app will also be available for Iphone in the near future.
