    Where you can upload a pic of a mystery item somewhere, direct a search
    engine to it , analyses it and finds similar. ?
    I have a no name web cam I would like to find a driver for and also a few
    hundred, no context silver-plated brass widgets , no name /number etc also,
    I'd like to identify

    That's easy (unless some rules have been broken).

    Google 'usb device id list' and ask your operating system what device id
    it sees.

    for and also a few
    That is a bit harder, needs human eyes. Can you post a picture on
    somewhere like photobucket?

    Search engines do not analyse pictures. You do need to up load pictures and have experts analyse,
    like a forum for silver plated brass widgets. You show them where to find pictures.

    By the way, Yahoo still favors using Flicker for their image library, but
    have greatly improved their image library. I have also noticed they are better
    than Google at indexing many websites, and like always, you have to use different
    search engines to find the info you are looking for.

    Though I think you'd have to load the picture somewhere first like
    flickr or something.

    I imagine that is for copyright infringement tracing, kept returning 0
    results whatever I uploaded to it or directed it to

    Not really much to photograph
    The widgets have a shape like bootlace ferrules but not for crimping as
    thicker brass and also silver plating. Maybe a variant of turret tags for
    setting in pcb without the turrets or some sort of terminal or pin.
    12.5 mm long, hole through axis with a ridge around the outside, one end 1mm
    hole and 2.5mm outside dimension and other end 2.8mm hole and 3.8mm outside.

    I think its a pin contact insert for a multi-pole connector. The ridge
    fixes the pin in whatever material is the connector body and wires are
    pushed and soldered inside the thicker end of it.

    DIN41612 type connectors with power carrying pins incorporated perhaps, like
    these

    Looking again there are different sizes , but not mutually pluggable and
    none have slits or sprung bits and silvered brass seems a bit odd for power
    connectors

    A decade ago some linguist claimed to have a system that could search
    voice files. I lost track of her but she said she had worked for Mitch
    Kapoor before her doctorate.

    My guess is you could convert the photos to text using GIFSCII, which
    would make them sufficiently fuzzy. They you would use a 4x4
    transformation (with perspective scalings in the fourth dimension) to
    convert everything to the same frame of reference.

    I'd guess it exists already, but some gatekeeper refuses to believe it
    enough to promote it.

    or "vector search engine".. just my first stab

    I believe JPEG/MPEG uses eigencovariance to transform the image to the
    coordinate system that requires the least possible storage, so that
    should already take care of the frame of reference. I suspect if you
    can get a search engine to just notice were in the JPEG this is
    located, it can find similar images. SOme of this work resulted from
    Kalman, Dhrymes & Los working on the SDI identification problem in the
    late 1980s.
