Stripe Spotter

The Weeknd revealed, a personal beer factory and brain-controlled computing in this week's look at the web

With an innovative use of pattern recognition software, Stripe Spotter has the ability to identify animals based on snapshots of their patterns (like the unique identifying marks on a zebra, as pictured). Developed at the Computational Population Biology laboratory at the University of Illinois, and the Equid Research and Conservation laboratory at Princeton, it will be unveiled at the International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval in Italy next week.
