Yeah it's been an option for a while now, they implemented it fully last week I think. Quite cool, although I haven't been overly impressed with most of the results it displays while you're typing. Guess it will get better over time.

I noticed that when i type it shows results instantly, but what ive just noticed today is that there is now a box around each result, and if you click inside the box (not the link) it shows a screenshot of that page

It does not work on google.co.nz as yet.

I can assure you it does not work on google.co.nz for me.
Are you sure you are not using google.com there is a difference.

Good for searchers, but been reading some online businesses might be panicking a little, as can divert/change/influence searchers original queries. But others note can instantly get good ideas for web/blog titles, without tedious keyword research.

Note: There has been reported issues and complaints about Google Images relating to search, displaying suggestions that kids should not see (http://searchengineland.com/at-google-images-g-is-for-girls-bathrooms-53237)
