Google Goggles coming soon for iPhone users
Google Goggles is an alliteration. Besides that, it also is an easy way to obtain information on items. Simply use your cellphone's camera and take a picture of the subject that you want to learn more about, and Google Goggles does all the hard work. The software can identify things like buildings, bridges, bar codes, logos and can even translate text into other languages. This past Thursday, at the Augmented Reality Event in Santa Clara, Google product manager Shailesh Nalawadi said that the application would soon be making its way to the iPhone. The new OS 4 includes new APIs that allow developers to gain access to data for both still and video cameras. This should allow developers to produce Augmented Reality type applications for the iPhone as well as make it easy for Google to build the iPhone version of Goggles.
