The Getty Museum has partnered with Google to encourage museum visitors to use the smartphone app Google Goggles™ in the galleries. The Getty created mobile versions of some of their collection Web pages, some including audio, which Google then incorporated in their visual search technology. For a sample page, click here. The app also allows you to snap a photo of a museum object label and translate it into over 50 different languages.
