Google Adds Plink to its Search “Inventory”

Google has decided to improve its Google Goggles project by integrating with an Android application. Google Goggles inputs user uploaded images of various things like landmarks, books, wine bottles etc. and identifies them along with quantity of information like product name, price and other search results associated with that product.

Google is going to associate itself with the Plink. With just four months old, Plink has shown its capabilities in the world of search engine. Being a visual search engine, Plink identifies snapped photographs of artwork uploaded by users on and provides amazing information regarding the searched keyword. Google Goggles will be the second product that will be benefiting capabilities of such a project. Google docs was the first product to get benefits from such projects.

Although, Google Goggles already has a category named as “Artwork,” the technology and capabilities of Plink will surely improve the visual search engine of Google Goggles across the globe. Already, offering an application for the Android market, Plink has also stated in their blog that they are looking forward to provide help and assistance to the Google Goggle team for building a visual search engine that will work for things that you see around you including, things like paintings and book covers.

So far in the history of search engines, visual search is the most amazing thing that has happened on the Web. Users can search images using Google Goggles from their camera phones. Visual search engines use various features like face matching, OCR, object recognition and also provide adequate search results to its users.

Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google said in September that the company is looking forward to acquire small organizations. With the Google’s first U.K acquisition we hope that the web giant will continue such projects in coming months.

Google Acquires Plink

Google just went gaga with its newest acquisition, Plink, a UK based company. With over 50, 000 users since they launched four weeks ago, Plink offered its users a revolutionary visual search technology for their cell phones. The Plink download enables its users to identify work of arts by taking photos of it and searching online for the details.

Plink will now be part of the efforts of Google to develop their own visual search engine Google Goggles. The mobile visual search company owned by Mark Cummins and James Philbin is also Google’s first foray in the United Kingdom. Google Goggles is available for cell phones running on Android 1.6. Aside from artworks, Goggles also enables users to search visually by taking pictures of logos, contact info, books, places, and landmarks. Looking for places doesn’t even need a photo. You could just point your camera at the storefront and Google searches for you using GPS and compass. Barely scratching the surface of visual search technology, Goggles has not integrated search for food, plants and animals yet.

With the Plink team and technology onboard Google’s expanding visual search technology, wonders will be in store for us users who are developing taste for possible search options other than typing text and putting voice input.

Google plans to acquire more promising companies at the rate of one startup company per month.
