Taking the complexity out of "Search"

Here is another exciting Kickstarter project that is clearly a harbinger of things to come. As you can see in this little video, CamFind's concept is "mobile visual search". Google already introduced this concept with Google Goggles, but the people behind CamFind say their technology is at least 4 times more accurate.

It is however easy to imagine what would happen if you combined this sort of tech with something like Google Glass. In essence the entire process you see here taking place on an iPhone would actually happen right in your field of vision. People around you wouldn't even be aware of the fact that you are busy researching them or checking out how much they paid for their furniture or new outfit. 

Just as exciting as it is creepy, no ?


So simple why didn't I think of it...

And another one of those clever, simple, "illuminating" ideas you smack your head about saying "Why didn't I think of this ?" An exciting new Kickstarter project called CordLite: an illuminated charger cable for your iPhone.


The best camera is the one you have with you...

I had previously posted a story about Kickstarter and how it acts as a funding platform for creative projects. Here is a new one. The saying goes that the best camera you own is the one you have with you when you need to take a picture. For iPhone 4 users there now is a new way to carry your phone around: as a camera. The video explains it best and details are available on the Kickstarter website. Still about one month to go to get in on this one so if taking pictures on your iPhone 4 is your "thing", go for it.
