Amazon Part Finder
DON’T GET SCREWED OVER BY PART REPLACEMENTS.
Free | www.amazon.com
Amazon wants to use your smartphone camera to save you the hassle of matching up new parts, and let you order them online. This isn’t the first AR application it has brought to the consumer online marketplace, adding product placement and visualisation features earlier this year, but the parts identification feature is another important time-saving addition. Drawing heavily on AI image recognition technology gained through the acquisition of Partpic, the software uses scale and identifying features to narrow down and identify the component from the million-part catalogue.
