Google Goggles: Sudoku Master

I like crosswords, not Sudoku (insert Barbie "math is hard" comment here). No seriously, in those moments when I want to unwind, I would rather do word puzzles than numbers puzzles. But Google Goggles? Yep - it prefers Sudoku.

Check out this match up between a Goggles-enabled smart phone and a National Sudoku champion. Guess who won? ;)

So what's Google Goggles really for? Augmented reality. Scan stuff (bar codes, QR codes, ads) or take a pic of the street you're on, and get additional info. Translate menus on the fly. As Google says, "Use pictures to surf the web".
