British start-up aims to re­vive the photo al­bum

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

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.
