VizSeek.com visual search engine

Seek the part

Purdue is helping make online searches easier — with just a snap of the camera.

VizSeek is a new visual search engine that helps people find industrial parts online, even when they don't know the name or product number.

Instead, a user selects a category to search, then uploads a photograph of the item to be found. The VizSeek engine shows items similar to the uploaded photograph. 

"Ours is the only online location to find industrial products with a photo," says Jamie Tan, CEO and co-founder of Imaginestics LLC, which is headquartered at the Purdue Research Park of West Lafayette.
