Last year, Google bought re-CAPTCHA that it was used to create and translate Captcha codes; so now we have the Google Goggles product, their latest.
Goggles is made only for latest Android phones that use OCR technology to recognize text from images and to translate it.
For example, if you are in a foreign country and you don’t understand something from the Menu, only make a picture to it and use Goggles to translate the text. Nice and easy.
I think that even Google knows that the system isn’t ready yet, but it is working on it and will be very useful for all of us.
For now, Google Goggles knows: English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. If you have Google Android 1.6 or newer phone you can download this application from Android Market.
