Google goggles, a really good application while you are travelling in Paris

Google Goggles lets you use pictures taken with your mobile phone to search the web. It’s ideal for things that aren’t easy to describe in words. There’s no need to type or speak your query – all you have to do is open the app, snap a picture, and wait for your search results.

This demonstration video will help you understand what is the potential of this new google feature :

Google Goggles works better with certain types of queries. Try taking pictures of books & DVDs, landmarks, logos, contact info, products, barcodes, or text; it can recognize up to three items at a time. I just tried taking a picture of the hotel Abbatial Saint Germain, and google found it immediatly! I think it is a very helpful application when you are travelling! 5 minutes after, I took a picture of Notre Dame, and google propose me the official website or the location of Notre Dame in Google Maps! Impressive!

As always, remember that using 3G while travelling can cost you a lot, but the wifi is free for our guests at the hotels Agora and Abbatial! Perfect if you want to stay connected!

This application is available on Android Phones and iPhones (using IOS 4).
