3D search engines are a huge improvement compare to traditional search engines. Princeton University has created its own model of a 3D search engine. If what you seek is not found at first, simply adjust the image to find more adjusted results. Changing the orientation of the picture can bring different results or narrow the search. There are times that text can bring better results.
What is a voxel?
Just like with digital images, a pixel is the main element of the image. When working with 3D images the main element is a voxel.
The growth of 3D search engines
The growth of 3D search engine use will grow for the business sector. Larger search engines are expected to attempt to provide searches of this nature if the use of 3D search engines becomes more and more popular.
People can create a 3D world for there searches. Searching for a vacation deal can be a 3D game.
Examples of 3D search engines
3D search engines are compatible with the major browsers like Internet Explorer and Firefox, the two most popular browsers today.
Ergo has created a 3D search engine using text and 3D images with results that are organized with stunning displays. Their search engine can store the results to be shared. It is geared toward the social marketing innovation.
Princeton University’s 3D search can be seen at http://shape.cs.princeton.edu/search.html
Try out their 3D search engine, for hands on experience with 3D, and text search to get results that are much more advanced than the basic search engine.
3D search engines will become very popular amongst engineers and manufacturers. The private sector may also use the 3D search engine in the future, but time will tell.
How 3D search engines work
3D search engines work similar to the traditional text based search engines. They search the web and index pages and images. Querying and matching brings results to the end user.
Shape queries will find images that are similar to the shape that was drawn. A car will provide images of autos, for example.
Text queries with match based on the textual description. 3D search engines will become an integral part of the future of search engines. More technologically oriented people will turn to this type of search engine to aid in the development of products.
