Google Voice Search Experiments in the Desert and Waters of Australia

So the kids at Google thought it would be fun to show Australians how well Google Voice Search works by conducting a series of experiments in remote Australian locations.  They really took it to a level that I think it is safe to say over 90% of us will never do.

First Google partnered with Tourism Australia and put out a call for voice search queries to be asked in the South Australian desert near Leigh Creek. This acoustic experiment was conducted by two Google Australia engineers, using a Samsung Galaxy S II Android smartphone and two Parabolic Mirrors.

Then Google took the fun to  the Great Barrier Reef. Google used a special device for communicating underwater, the device is made up with microphone in the divers mask, which was then connected to some other equipment on a boat where device along with Sony Ericsson Xperia neo Android phone loaded Google Voice was located.

You can use Google Voice Search on Android phones by pressing the microphone button on the home screen or downloading the app. You can also download the app for the iPhone here.
