A new version of global search engine Google can now solve Sudoku, the popular maths puzzle which took the world by storm with its simple grid of digits and empty boxes - no matter what the level of difficulty.

In fact, any cellphone can now solve the puzzle, thanks to the newly updated mobile phone application, called 'Google Goggles' which uses a cellphone's camera to capture a picture of any Sudoku and then sends it back to Google.

The company's servers compute the answers and send an image of the completed puzzle back to the user. Depending on the speed of the phone's Internet connection, the results can be back in seconds.
