Google Offers Sneak Peak at Its Visual Search Tool
Google recently gave a short demonstration of its still-under-construction Visual Search service. Visual Search would allow a user to take a picture of an object and then automatically perform a Google search based on that image. Google would then return relevant results. Visual Search would not require the user to enter any text information. Google conducted trials of the technology in August, and they weren't successful. Google is still trialling the technology before a wide-scale roll-out. Google is using assets it acquired with the purchase of Neven Vision in 2006.
