Omniveillance: Google Goggle’s “Continuous Mode” Continuously Photographs and Understands Everything Around You

December 7th, 2011

What could go wrong?

Until today’s update, Google’s all-knowingvisual search app only worked if you took photos of items. See a painting you like, take a picture and tells you the artist and the title. Take a photo of a bar code and Goggles will give you product information. Continuous Mode, the best part of today’s Googles update, does away with that cumbersome step—most of the time. Google says that the new mode works best with books, products, artwork and landmarks. Translating text and adding contacts won’t work with Continuous Mode.
