Google Goggles lets you take a picture of something that you’re curious of, and it will tell you more about it. For example, take a photo of a famous painting, a landmark or a bottle of wine, and Google Goggles will make a Google search for that object.

The software is still under development and it may not work for some things. Plink Art was a great app that let you identify almost any work of art simply by taking a photo of it, sort of like a Shazam for art. The company behind Plink Art was purchased by Google, and its technology has been incorporated in Google Goggles.
