British start-up aims to revive the photo album
IMAGE-RECOGNITION technology is the driving force behind a new device that aims to make the photo album a fixture of the living room once again.
The device, developed by London-based start-up Pholio, is similar in size to a photo album. It gathers images and home videos shared to sites such as Facebook, Google and Flickr. The software inside the device then checks all images against 20,000 in-built search terms. Pholio is also capable of recognising friends and relatives by name.
Pre- orders for the device are being taken via Kickstarter, with prices starting from £199. For more, visit www.pholio.io.
