Your next mobile phone will amaze you.
The eye-Phone (no, not Apple’s i-Phone) runs on mobile telephones and works like this: If you see something interesting while out walking for instance, you take a photograph with your mobile phone and select the item of interest with the cursor. The object selected is then recognized and transmitted with satellite navigation localization data to a central system interfacing to databases on the internet to get information on the object. The information found is sent back to the phone and displayed to you.
The eye-Phone is a novel mobile phone programmable to provide information on what you see when you see it. It combines three of today's modern technologies: satellite navigation localization services, advanced object recognition and relevant internet retrieved information. The system has been developed using Apollo technology, an innovative artificial intelligence piece of software that can carry out object recognition within images regardless of the angle from which it is taken, the lighting conditions or quality of the image. To support object recognition, it uses navigation positioning information.
