Here are some projects developed at Google which will leave you stunned:
Google’s Person Finder:
Mother Nature is very unpredictable. Due to this unpredictable nature, we cannot always be prepared for any natural calamity. What if such a crises strikes and your friend or family member is a victim of it? What if there is no source to contact them anyhow? Google thought about this and to aid your search, they developed an awesome project, ‘Person Finder’.

This application aims at reconnecting missing individuals with their loved ones. For this you (or a government or a non-government organization) need to embed the small version of Google Person Finder on a website. Then, anyone can enter the missing person’s name there and the app will do its job of locating the individual. In similar fashion, if you have information about a missing person, you can upload it directly on the site and it will be shown to anyone searching for him.
Google Goggles:
Suppose you’re on a tour in a completely new place and unfortunately there is no tour guide to assist you. Or maybe you’re lost somewhere and you aren’t able to describe the location to your friend for help. Google has a solution to this as well i.e. The Google Goggles.
