The Holy Grail Of Search Engine Programming

It's one thing to run a webcrawler, aggregator, or other text-based search across the internet and come up with good results.  The technology to do that has created massive amounts of commerce and corporations you may know like Yahoo! and Google.  But how do you Google an image?

These guys claim to have come pretty damn close.  I can't verify it for myself because their site is down -- no doubt overwhelmed by traffic.  In the meantime, go here, watch the video, and get ready because the next step towards Web 3.0 is almost upon us.
