Mobile Search Device From (the past, depicting) The Future

January 6, 2012 — Leave a comment

A 2008 article from www.gearfuse.com depicts a prototype search device developed by Google.

“The future of Internet searching has a strong future, especially as long as companies like the world-dominating Google keep making the most of mobility and advanced search algorithms. The Internet Search: Mobile Version incorporates a touchscreen, built-in camera, WiFi, Google Map and Search, and image recognition to produce a search platform like nothing we’ve never seen.”

“If you’re wondering what a word means of what building you are standing near, just whip out the mobile searcher and touch the translucent display as you would any touchscreen. The device then conducts a search of the area you clicked on using its image recognition and camera to find search matches for your criteria.”

What?? no app store

Thanks to Siobhan O’Flynn for the find.
