Tourist information wherever you are

The eye-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 recognised and transmitted 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 won the regional prize for Bavaria, Germany in the 2007 European Satellite Navigation competition.
