    I just did it. It's crazy. It's pretty much a damn tricorder at this point.

    As the above two stated, I did the same thing. It's pretty cool and pointless.

    I'm going to bet my wife sexual favors that I can do sudoku puzzles faster than her. She knows I suck at them so this will be epic.

    Anyone really use this app. I find it just sitting on my phone, finally got rid of it.

    Google Goggles? I use it quite a bit to identify pictures and use it as my bar code scanning software.

    It works as bar code scanning, even on QR codes? Well that I didn't know...

    Pretty simple technology. There has been text recognition software on the market for years and writing code to solve a soduko probably isn't all that hard. Combining those to run on a phone in a seamless quick program is the challenge.

    He still should have to write the answers down on the paper.

    Being an electrical engineer, I only program when I have to, but I would say that an algorithm that works on a phone as quickly as that did to solve a Sudoku puzzle is pretty impressive.

    The algorithm is probably running on Google server.

    But can Google Goggles teleport me to the Playboy Mansion. If it can't do that its useless.

    Didn't some E Coli solve a Sudoku in China recently? I would like to see Google keep you on the toilet all day!
