Google and the Getty Museum

Google image searching technology has recently improved drastically and enabled a number of cool features.  These include “back-searching”, which is inputting an image into google and searching for information about about the image (!), and now you can get that image directly from a device (as in a camera on an iphone or ipad).  So, when you go to the Getty, you can snap a picture of a painting and look at it through “Google Goggles” in order to begin researching about the painting.  This is simply astonishing.
