The J. Paul Getty Museum collection comes alive with Google Goggles

Monday, June 27, 2011 | 1:40 PM

The Google Goggles team has worked with The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles to “Goggles-enable” their permanent collection of paintings. You can use the Google Goggles app on your phone to take a photo of a painting from the collection and instantly access information about it from the Getty’s mobile-optimized website and the rest of the web. It's possible to fit only a small amount of information on the wall next to a painting but visitors with Goggles can now enjoy the full story online.

A good example here how image based search can be leveraged to bring users more relevant information. As the technology matures, we can expect to see new opportunities for businesses to connect with its clients. Imagine virtual product tours when you snap a pic of an item on a shelf or detailed travel routes displayed when snap a photo of a bus stop. A lot of possibilities here really.
