This is such a cool new feature: now you can do a Google image search for an actual image file. So for instance, if you have a file and you want to know more about the image, you can go to images.google.com and drop the actual file into the search box.
For example, my co-worker tweeted an image above, asking if anyone knew where it’s from. So I saved the file, then dropped it into the Google Image search box and got all these results. So I can now tell you that this is an actual indoor cloud created by Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde.
My cable-subscribing coworkers tell me that this function has also recently been featured on MTV’s show, Catfish, where the host drops in social media profile photos to see if they’re real or copied from other sources on the web.
Sometimes, technology really does rock.
