Although not a new idea I do think that Spezify has got the elements that a visual search engine should have in a very functional way.
The results are collected from a number of search APIs and include social and multimedia content presented as a mosaic of the “big picture” for any search terms.
“Web search has looked more or less the same since 1994,” said Persson in a press release. “We were missing a place generating an instant and appealing overview of a certain subject, regardless of media. In addition to finding the expected, Spezify gives you new associations and lets you discover things you didn’t know were out there.”
Have a look yourself and see what you think you can even run elements like youtube videos straight from the page 🙂
