Google will be introducing their Google Goggles application over to owners of iOS-operated devices, thanks to an announcement by Goggles’ project lead David Petrou who spoke at the Hot Chips conference at Stanford University. This will happen before the year is over, and Petrou did drop some hints on the possibility of an open API for the image search application and potential opening of Goggles up to third-party applications. I must say that while Goggles is an interesting application, I have hardly used it on my Android smartphone. Perhaps I live a very “meh” life, but that’s another can of worms altogether. How have you used Goggles to date? This would also mean the next generation iPod touch with a built-in camera should be able to take advantage of Google Goggles as well, let’s see which will be released first.
