Culture Cam

March 23, 2015

Culture Cam is a working prototype of a new search tool that can be used to access the Europeana portal in a fun and playful way.

The main idea behind Culture Cam is to provide access and to make the creative re-use of Europeana content easier. Culture Cam is a word free search tool that is used with webcam. It looks for similarities for example in shapes, patterns and colours.


The content found in Culture Cam is public domain material only. Currently there are approximately couple of thousand images. The tool is already useable, even though it is still being developed, for example more content will be added.

It is simple, intuitive and easy to use. It aims to provide not only those really good and similar results, but also unexpected and surprising results for even more inspiration.
