Technology is amazingly moving fast and you would be surprised at the rate things are getting developed and exposed to consumers.
Pinterest, a web popularly known for sharing pictures has brought technology closer to its subscribers and these promises to be awesome.
Pinterest unveiled a new feature on Tuesday that allows users of the visual scrapbooking service to take a photo of an object and find the object, or similar objects, within the app for what Pinterest President Tim Kendall calls those “magical moments of inspiration.”
Kendall said these are moments like seeing someone wearing a shirt you like at a bar or, personally for him, when he saw a stroller he loved for his two children this past weekend.
The San Francisco-based company will launch the camera feature, which should ultimately help users buy products linked to the service, in the coming months.
All you need to do is find something you love, snap it and Pinterest provide option on where and how you can get the items.

Pinterest has also made its visual search tool automatic. Since November, users have been able to use the tool to highlight different objects in a picture to find similar objects on Pinterest, such as a specific lamp or pillow in a picture of a living room. Now, iOS users will see dots on different objects in a picture, showing the user she can click on that dot to find objects like it on Pinterest.
Pinterest also announced that beginning Tuesday, Pinterest is ridding itself of the “Buy It” button and created “Add to Bag” so users can buy more than one item at one time and will have a shopping bag across all their platforms. The shopping bag tells users the shipping deals that are available to them from that retailer. The feature is available on Android and desktop and will be coming out on iOS in the coming weeks.
The private owned company actually makes its revenue from advertising and they hope this benefits its users and Pinterest as well.
