The 1,240-page Google Dictionary is Technologically Savvy

The Google dictionary capitalizes on the old adage: a picture is worth a thousand words.

Created by London Designers Ben West and Felix Heyes, this photo-heavy dictionary offers the first Google image as the ‘definition’ of a word. The traditional 21,000 words featured in this resource book do not have usage examples, synonyms, antonyms or tools to help you pronounce, but rather, are represented by high-gloss pictures sourced from the Internet.

As people spend more time on the web, the way in which information is synthesized evolves, so a dictionary like this is revolutionary. With infographics and the ‘meme’ phenomenon as Internet staples, it is about time that other academic resources catch up.
