the app lets you use your camera to identify decor, clothing, and food you see in the real world. By pointing your camera at a pair of shoes, for instance, you'll be able to see similar styles on Pinterest and get ideas for how to wear them.

Looks to be image search within the Pinterest gated community ...but that's a very powerful community! When this gets out of beta, this app is going to sell stuff. Lots & lots of stuff.

If they were a publicly traded company, I would put money down.

I can't find the URL, but the other day I was looking to match a machine part and someone is working on a technology that will let you take a photo and find your part, including an individual screw - not sure how they scale to get the diameter and thread pitch right, but it will make those mechanical projects a lot better. That's the one I'm waiting for.

As for clothing style, I don't think I'll be using this much. I always remember what a woman said to me once after she'd gotten to know me a bit. We were climbing together and she looked at me hard and said "So, Tom, do you buy a lot of your clothes on sale?"

I have seen other similar apps with similar functionality i.e. take a picture and it identifies the products. Huge potential there.

Lens builds on earlier Pinterest innovations like Related Pins and Guided Search — both based on the idea that you sometimes don't know what you're looking for until you see it — as well as a visual search tool that can find similar images inside the billions of pins that Pinterest has collected. Related pins are served up according to a similarity score that Pinterest's algorithms assign between images.

Lens expands on that earlier search tool beyond images to include things in the real world. Image-detection programs identify an object and visual search digs up similar images, making it easier to buy a coveted item online. The potential for this kind of product-search innovation is interesting: You can search for things that won't fit in a standard search box, and more tightly connect things found offline with those found online.

“For shopping specifically, improvements to online discovery means new ways to find products you’re interested in but may not have the words for,” says Andrew Zhai, an engineer working on Pinterest's visual search. “Visual discovery gives people a way to discover new brands and ways of styling that they never knew existed.”

https://www.liketoknow.it/ - Just released their app. Talked to them a bit this morning and it is pretty slick. Take a screenshot (primarily from Instagram) and it gives you a link where you can buy. This is huge in the fashion space.
