Haha nice, Goggles can solve sudoku puzzles. I tried it on my iPhone and it worked perfectly.

The old Goggles on my iPhone didn't ever do anything useful for me, might be because I'm on a Chinese net or because it's not as advanced as needed yet. As for solving Sudoku, a nice gimmick pointing to perhaps other more useful augmented reality apps. Perhaps Google should buy the WordLens guys to speed things up a little, or are they already working on real-time word replacement & translation? It would be a total killer app if available for important language pairs, like Chinese <--> English...

You mean:

   * Point your phone at a word or phrase. Use the region of interest button to draw a box around specific words
   * Press the shutter button
   * If Goggles recognizes the text, it will give you the option to translate
   * Press the translate button to select the source and destination languages.

I don't play sudokus, but I'll be impressed if it solves crosswords :P
