Imagine a device that combines GPS, OLED technology and advanced image recognition to let you point to something and have Google immediately identify it. That’s the idea behind Google Vision, a conceptual product developed by Callum Peden in the UK. When you take a picture, the GPS immediately tags a location to it. The image recognition software then identifies the object in question, say a landmark, and the wireless Internet connection would then provide you with information such as history, nearby landmarks and more.
If it’s not cool enough already, imagine that Google Vision comes with a retractable and flexible screen for easy storage. So it may not be in stores tomorrow but is it really that farfetched? Probably not. And it remains to be seen if Google (or another search engine) would actually be interested in such a product.
