Mobile Visual Search Engine on the Apple iPhone

Imagine you could search the Internet just by taking a picture of something, such snapping a picture of a music CD to look up reviews and listen to the tracks, instantly getting information on a product featured in a magazine, or looking up recommend places to visit by taking a picture of a famous landmark.

Millions of mobile phone users can “visually search” the Internet today with the help of this revolutionary search engine powered by Evolution Robotics’ Visual Pattern Recognition technology. (ViPR®)

Evolution is developing a number of applications for visual search, and we came up with this quick demo for the iPhone to showcase some of the the possibilities .

    I wonder if this the ViPR image recognition technology and database includes or will be expanded to include album/book covers, and photographs of people.

    Privacy issues aside, harnessing photographs from the abundance of social networking sites would yield a comprehensive archive of human faces, which would extend this technology to identifying people on the street.

    Extending this concept to other organisms & rocks, biologists & geologists in the field cab use it to identify species & rocks.
