Frequently we talk to you about the experiments in which Google tries to show the potential of technologies such as augmented reality or neural networks. And this time we expanded the list by talking about Emoji Scavenger Hunt. This game uses Google’s neural networks to recognize emojis in the real world.

As its creators claim, it is a browser-based game that harnesses the potential of machine learning, neural networks and the camera of our mobile device to work. Specifically, Emoji Scavenger Hunt will ask us to look for the emoji he shows us on the screen, so we will have to move around using our smartphone’s camera until we find the emoji sketched in real life.
We will have a time limit at all times, so we will have to hurry so that the countdown does not reach zero. If we can find the emoji successfully, the game will offer us a different emoji, so the entertainment is practically unlimited. Also, the game does not neglect the privacy of the user, as the images are not stored on the company’s servers.
At this point, we cannot deny that this is an interesting experiment to have some fun with. If it has caught your attention, you can test its operation by accessing the Emoji Scavenger Hunt website from your smartphone or tablet. We will now leave you with the video presentation of the experiment:
