I was just surfing the internet and I randomly came across Google’s latest project, “Google Goggles“, and one thing it certainly reminded me from is the anime Eden of the East‘s “Eden System”, where you take search by taking a picture from your camera phone.
Google Goggles is a visual search app for Android phones. Instead of using words, take a picture of an object with your camera phone: we attempt to recognize the object, and return relevant search results. Goggles also provides information about businesses near you by displaying their names directly in the camera preview. [G]
Cool~ We might be getting a RL Eden System in development. Google might have been influenced after watching Eden of the East to port it on mobile phones, lol. Who knows if it’ll be developed for human identification too? Seems very interesting, can’t wait to see how this develops.
