Google Goggles is a mobile application that lets users take a picture of a location or objects such as a product or painting from their smartphone and do a Google search that pulls up information associated with the image.

The image a user snaps with his or her camera is a query that gets sent to Google's cloud computing data centers and processed with computer vision algorithms.

The application is available for smartphones based on Google's Android operating system version 1.6 and up and is a popular draw among users of the Motorola Droid, Google Nexus One and HTC Droid Incredible.
