Playing a Game of Google

Today’s installment of internet entertainment comes from Grant Robinson, and his simple web-based apps that uses Google’s image search to produce two unique gaming grids.

Montage-a Google is a simple web-based app that uses Google’s image search to generate a large gridded montage of images based on keywords (search terms) entered by the user. Not only an interesting way of browsing the net, it can also be used to create desktop pictures or even posters.

TIP:
If you want to print or save your montage you can take a screen grab of it (‘Prt Sc’ key on PC) and paste it into you favorite photo or paint application to print or save it from there.

Here are two I created. The first one I created simply using the word “tech”.

The next one I created using the terms “pompeii”, “herculaneum” and “ruins”. It should also be noted, that a repeat search with the same words can end up with vastly different montages.

Also, as you move the cursor over the pics, the reference point for each one is listed, and as you click each pic, the link pops up for you to check out.

Guess-The-Google

Guess-The-Google reverses this process by picking the keywords for you, the player must then guess what keyword made up the image – it’s surprisingly addictive. The basic premise of the game is to guess what search phrase was used to find the 20 different partial images displayed in the box. This is not as simple as it may seem! A few of the harder keywords included the likes of “onomatopoeia”, “kiosk” , and “gates”.

So go at it! Create something! Guess something. Just have fun!
