You're out on vacation in, let's say, California. You see a giant, sprawling vineyard on one side of the road, but absolutely no sign to identify the place. As things stand now, you'd just have to drive on by with a question wiggling uncomfortably in the back of your brain. If Google has its way though, you'll soon be able to snap a picture and find out just what you passed. According to E-Week (via Phandroid), Google is working on bringing visual search to Android smartphones. Google product manager Hartmut Neven talked the technology up in a recent episode of CNBC's "Inside the Mind of Google". He was able to take a photo of a Santa Monica pier, send it to Google, and bring up a list of relevant search results. Thanks to widespread GPS, accelerometer, and compass technology in smartphones, this sort of function is possible now for the first time.The question is, when will it hit? Will it be an app in the App Market, or will it be just another web-based application that anyone can use through Google?
