There will never be an end to new ideas with the iPhone and that’s what makes it so great! Developers are working on a visual search engine for the iPhone. Basically you just take a photo of something and email it to their servers and you get a reply with all kinds of info. Now of course this will only work with whatever they choose to put in their databases. So if you take a picture of your kid and email it to them you probably won’t get any relevant info. The video demo below shows movie and book covers but images it working with everything, then link it to Wikipedia! Right now it’s working with YouTube and iTunes. Can you imagine taking a picture of a car and getting info on it? Or a house for sale and getting it’s listing!
