You can take a photo of a book with a Android phone & Google Goggles will show you search results pertaining to that. So an image acts a keyword for Google Goggles.


It can scan a business card, extract information from it & store contact details on your phone automatically. It can get you the title & artist of a painting or get you landmark information for a place that you take a snap of. This computer vision technology can also do translation of text.

This YouTube video explains more about this interesting app. An excerpt from it about what it holds for the future -

Visual search is still in its infancy. 

In the future it will help you do more cool things like suggesting a move in a chess game or taking a picture of a leaf to identify the plant available for Android powered phones
