Google Lens: What is it and how does it work? #AR #AI @google
Google Lens is the replacement for the Google Goggles app, and thankfully for old users of that app, it still does most of the things Goggles was known for, and a lot more besides.
Google Lens is pretty easy to use. Point Google Lens at an object and it’ll attempt to identify it. If it knows what it is, it can suggest places to buy it, or alternative products — or simply pull up a Google search for that item.
It can identify plants, store phone numbers and dates on posters, or give you information about nearby landmarks!
Google officially launched Google Lens on October 4, 2017 with app previews pre-installed into the Google pixel 2. Google Lens is available for iOS and Android. Check it out!

It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
