Google goggles image recognition update

When I reported on Google Goggles a few weeks ago it was clear that this is a great application for visual search. The application, which is still in Google labs, uses the technology to recognise objects that are recorded by the inbuilt camera of a mobile phone. After analyizing the picture it uses the various elements to search Google for relevant links. The movie here shows the extend of the search on the basis of the image. By taking a picture of a single object a search can be done on various elements of the image of, in this case, a Toblerone candy bar.
