You know Gmail and Google Maps, but have you seen the latest and greatest from Google's experimental labs section?

Google Public Data Explorer

Google Goggles

Google Goggles lets you search on the go, using pictures instead of words. Submit a picture of something you want more information on - such as a landmark or a product menu - and Google will automatically search for it.
