Google Goggles

Today Google launched a new version of Google Goggles for android and it seems it is going to be faster and smarter. Before I would say it would have like 90% probability to detect whatever you scan. Now they have improved the speed and added a couple of things.

First, Google Goggles now is able to recognized printed ads although it only works with magazines printed in major U.S. magazines and newspapers after August 2010 which isn't that bad.

Second, they have improved the scan functionality and now it works faster than ever. According to them it takes around a second to find the product ( it used to take like 5 to 10 seconds before ).

And the third one, They have added the ability to solve SUDOKU puzzles by scanning the puzzle as it were a bar code. I like this one a lot. I have no tested properly but so far it works great :)

So start solving sudoku puzzles :) here it is a video of how it works, enjoy it!

I like the slogan at the end, "solving life's problems, one puzzle at a time" :)
