You can crop part of an image and pugoob can find other images that have the part you cropped. It is a model search tool. In other words, it sees one image as a scene and tries to locate the second image (as a model) within the scene. It is based on work done 15 years ago and works remarkably well. Of course the down side is that it is computationally intensive. A running version and the entire source code (Actually the whole Amazon Machine Image) can be found here : http://pugoob.nameserver.googlepages.com/"

That means a lot coming from such a huge company. Although ultra-mobile PCs have not been very popular in the past, it looks like Asus may have finally done one right."
