Sorry to go a little off topic here, but it’s a real shame Google Goggles is not yet compatible with Nokia smartphones. For those who are not yet aware of this service, Google Goggles is Google’s version of Nokia Point & Find, however Google has taken this service a whole step further, a whole lot faster. The video after the jump shows how the new updated version of Google Goggles can now solve Sudoku puzzles faster than the 2009 Sudoku National Champion!
So where does Nokia Point & Find currently stand? Well, being the first to come out with a great solution is not always a good thing, as other companies can easily jump on the idea with fresh, innovative, and more often than not, more advanced services. Nokia Point & Find continues to offer what we can now call the basics in augmented reality, whereas Google is continuing to update and bring forward more features for it’s version.
Augmented Reality (AR) is destined to become a huge avenue for information based services in the future, and I can safely say that this is just the beginning of AR, I’m sure 2011 has a lot more in store for us.Tags | Applications, AR, Augmented Reality, Browsing, Camera, Connectivity, Demo, Google, Google Goggles, Internet, Point & Find, Sudoku, Video
