InTheKnow, by Nick Quirk and Khem Veasna
InTheKnow allows users to IMMEDIATELY obtain the description/reviews of a book  just by taking a picture. Once a picture of a target object taken, a lookup (a post request with the image encoded) will be done against Google's image service to get the book's title (gotten from the "Best match" information). It will then lookup information about the book against Google's book api to get additional data about the book-- description, etc. For kicks, the device will also read out information about the book.
