Since we launched Google Goggles in 2009, the team has been busy expanding the number of images that can be recognized in categories like book covers, logos and works of art—even partnering with world-class art museums like the Getty Museum http://goo.gl/ENxgf and Metropolitan Museum of Art http://goo.gl/kRqxT.
We’ve been at work adding new categories of objects that Goggles can recognize, like Sudoku puzzles and, starting today, currency notes. Now, when you point Google Goggles at a banknote you’ll get a result telling you the type of bill you’re looking at, including the country, denomination and the year.
