Google is shutting down Google Labs, the company’s test bed for early experimental projects created by its engineers.

Some projects from Labs have become official Google products, like Google Goggles (an Android app that recognizes real-world objects) and Google Listen (an Android app for podcasts and other Web audio).

But individual products like Search and Gmail also have their own early test areas, which made Labs kind of redundant. Matt Rosoff/Business Insider.
