Image Based Search Engine

VizSeek is one of the first search engines on the Internet to use a photograph, a 2D image, or a 3D model and transform it into a 3D shape. The search can be narrowed with additional information. The image-seeking search engine produces search results in a matter of seconds.

Whether you need a bolt, a motor, a belt or a tool, finding the perfect, hard-to-describe part can be like finding a needle in a haystack. But now, engineers have put together a computer program that can track down just about anything you need -- even if you don't know what it's called!

When it comes to making repairs, replacing parts or finding a tool, a new visual search engine can help you find exactly what you're looking. Created by mechanical engineers, VizSeek uses pattern recognition to take a doodle, sketch or photo and find out exactly what it is.

Right now, VizSeek is used for manufacturers to track down parts or find suppliers but in the near future, it could help anyone track down just about any part they need.

Imaginestics also hopes to have stores catalog which parts they have. You would no longer have to take the part into the store and try and match it. Instead, you would just print out the barcode from your computer, take that in and have the salesperson find it for you.
