Our boss mentioned something about Google working on some sort of image recognition search. You could snap a pic with your cell phone, upload it to Google, and if G recognizes it, would tell you more about it. I tried looking it up, and I did find some articles on that, but they were about a year or two old. Does anyone have more recent news on this?
That has great potential. Imagine you're on the road, and you're getting hungry. You could stop and snap a picture of "Mom and Pop Country Restaurant", upload it, and it would give you ratings, reviews, a menu, etc. Of course my example is probably wishful thinking, but the potential is there.
