This is actually pretty neat feature, and works fine once you identify a specific pretty popular object like the London bridge in the video, or Cars in my case.

But not for places like Kuwait Towers for example.

Maybe they’re still building up their full database. It seems to be taking the clouds heavily into the equation if you see in the first picture.

The service is still in the labs, but you can try it out here. Hope it doesn’t stay there for the next 3 years!

    neat feature,

    I came across somthing similar here tineye.com last year and I thought that it was awesome.

    but google’s service is better I think.

    Thanx for the post.

    Q80Gadgeteer: Yeah, i recall tineye. Sad some good companies may not get good enough attention. Their unique factor was ability to upload an image and then search for similarities.

    Q80Gadgeteer: Yeah, I just rechecked Tineye. Their problem is they don’t give similar images, but exact images! Usually you’re looking for alterations rather than exact duplicate copy, unless you have small thumbnail and want the big picture.
