Google Goggles Coming to iPhone Soon
Posted on August 23, 2010 by vincent oliver
Google’s visual-search technology, Google Goggles, should be available for iPhone users later this year.
From The Register:
“We’re working on an iPhone version, and hope to have it out by the end of the year,” David Petrou, a Google staff engineer working on the Goggles project, told his keynote audience at Monday’s Hot Chips conference at Stanford University in California.
A web app for Goggles, Petrou said, isn’t current;y an option, even with HTML5’s enhanced media-capture abilities. “There is a new part of HTML5,” he said, “that allows you to acquire an image from a camera. And that’s really nice and really useful, but we don’t think it’s sufficient for something like Goggles that needs very fine control over the camera.
