Some thoughts about how Microsoft’s futuristic commercials can be connected to Google’ reality. Yesterday announcement of Visual Search or how Google called it Google Googles, drove me to think and connect some of my previous posts and videos I had chance to see before.
According to the information provided, ““Google is working on Google Visual Search, a mobile application that lets users take a picture of a location from their Android-powered smartphone and trigger a Google search that pulls up information associated with the image”. You can see some product video and if you have G1 phone you can try this product from Google Labs.
What was interesting to discover is relation to one of my previous posts. Time ago, I wrote about PLM content downstream usage. I put few pictures from futuristic search solutions done by Behance Network Projects. I think you will agree- this is very much similar to what we can see on Visual Search by Google.
Another interesting event, about a year ago I had chance to see very futuristic commercial video about the future of Manufacturing done by Microsoft. Some of the presented features are very close to the reality presented by Google in their visual search. Take a look on pictures and video below.
This is an original Microsoft video:
I’ll not make my conclusion today. I will leave you to think and made your own.
These are only my thoughts. YMMV.
