Nice improvements to Google Lens for iOS

My team makes tech that Lens uses to do things like track text in the screenshot below, so I’m pleased that Google Lens is getting integrated into Google search on iOS and upgraded in Google Photos:

It’s easier than ever to do more with your photos with a new, redesigned Google Lens experience on Android and iOS–now available in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Korean.

Enjoy!

Heh—kinda fun & interesting:

This new camera feature, dubbed “Live Stickers,” allows users to produce multiple animated stickers of themselves or friends, and place them in “live” environments before sharing them with the world through social media platforms.

Is it useful? I’m not sure, but I’d welcome your thoughts. You can grab the app for iOS and take it for a spin.

50 years ago today: “The Mother Of All Demos”

I’ve been hearing about this seminal presentation for ages, but until now I’d never actually seen it. It’s well worth a look at what must’ve been a jaw-dropping peek into so many breakthroughs that remain central to our lives today:

On December 9, 1968, Dr. Douglas C. Engelbart and the Augmentation Research Center (ARC) at Stanford Research Institute staged a 90-minute public multimedia demonstration… [F]or the first time, the public saw a computer mouse, which controlled a networked computer system to demonstrate hypertext linking, real-time text editing, multiple windows with flexible view control, cathode display tubes, and shared-screen teleconferencing. The 1968 demo presaged many of the technologies we use today, from personal computing to social networking.
