Plink the Visual Search engine for art has been purchased by Google, after a short stint of 4 months since they went public, Mark and James have now been hired by Google to work on Google goggles they will no longer work on Plink but the application will remain as it is for user to download.
Allot of people are asking “what is Plink?” or “who is Plink”, Plink is a UK based company that is behind the plinkart.com application, this is a mobile visual search engine … eh I know, the first time I heard that I was as flabbergasted as you probably are right now, because I know I can search for images so what did they mean visual search engine.
Plink makes visual search engines that let you find out more about something just by taking a photo of it. PlinkArt, enables you to identify paintings and artworks with just a snap from your phone’s camera. Once recognized, you can read information on the artwork and artist, share your favorite pieces with friends or even order a print to hang on your wall. Reference www.plinkart.com.
Details of the acquisition, including the purchase price, were not released but we do hope that they join the list of young millionaires on the internet.
