Google shows summary info of Famous persons, Books, Places and Films at Right Side Bar of SERP

Today I have noticed that Google is showing Summary information at right side bar while searching some kind of keywords like famous person name (e.g Obama), Places (e.g New York City, Delhi), Books, and Films.

For example, when I searched for "Abraham Lincoln", Google showed photo of Abraham Lincoln, brief introduction about Lincon, a link to wikipedia page about Lincoln, and key details like Born, Height, Spouse, and Children.

It seems this new feature is working on Mozilla Firefox only. When I tested it in Google Chrome, it didn't work. And, it works only if I have logged in with my Google Account.

I am not sure whether I am just noticing the old feature of Google today only, or Google is going to release it in future. Because I haven't seen any updates in Google official blogs in recent days. You can share your thoughts thro' the comments section if you know more about this new feature.
