Visual browser lets you search with your phone's camera

Have you ever been curious about a product you’ve seen on a billboard, but not so curious as to want to actually type the search request into a search engine? Enter the newly-released Thrrum Visual Browser to save the day. Once the software is downloaded onto one of the compatible Sony Ericsson handsets, you only need to take a picture of the text you’d like to search for, and it does the rest. The rest being, presumably to translate your photo of words into actual text for a search engine request. So if you’ve ever wanted to experience the steadfast reliability that is OCR software, and take it with you on your cell phone, this is just the ticket.
