VideoSurf Mobile App: Search For Video Using Video

 |  |  |  |  |  January 19, 2011

It’s as if Xzibit came up with the idea behind VideoSurf: “Yo dawg, I heard you like videos, so we made it so you can search for videos using videos.” Currently in development, the smartphone app will let users find more information about a video and the people in it just by capturing the video using their smartphone’s camera.

There are already apps that do the same thing for songs – sing or hum a part of a song and it’ll name that tune. But VideoSurf might be even more magical, assuming it works. Here’s a cheesy tutorial video from VideoSurf Inc. :

I blame Apple for popularizing this high-ranking-officials-explaining-how-their-company’s-stuff-works trend.
