This is a great tool for scanning QR codes and more. My students use this tool to scan the QR code on note packet to take them to my YouTube playlist of support videos created for those notes. However, Google Goggles has a reverse search option where you can take a picture of just about anything and it will identify what, how much, where, etc… the object or item is.
