This is a visual search application for Windows Phone 7. It’s still experimental, but works well. Take a picture using your phone’s camera, label it using IQEngine’s image recognition platform and search Bing for it. The image recognition engine works great and labels everything. For some images it can even provide ISDN or UPC. It works best for books, CDs, magazines, product labels, etc. Anything that does have a unique identity. Oh, yes, to complete the picture it can tell you when search results are ready and what they are. And I mean with human voice.
The following are application screenshots. Note that it looks different on the phone and provides real thumbnail images in recent search results.
I’m still thinking what use it can be to an average consumer except for it’s pure coolness… Also the IQEngine’s service is not free, which is understandable, but this is somehow needs to be paid for by the application users.
