VizWiz Helps Blind People Identify Objects

VizWiz is a free (for now) iPhone/iPad2 app and Internet service that allows blind users to receive quick answers to questions about their surroundings. The user takes a photo of one or more objects and then sends it along with a question, such as "Are these shoes the same color?" A response is returned within a minute from web workers or social networks.
