A new technology from Accenture's research labs, a French company, allows cell phones to transform into thin clients. The technology was demoed last week by showing a cell phone that recorded images of a print of Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" painting. After the camera took video images of the painting, a search of a database on the linked Windows XP computer returned results giving information about the painting as well as info about the the recent film of the same title. This extends the possibility of mobile-based search to include interaction with objects in the real world...when can I get a phone that does that? (via The Raw Feed)
