Google introduces a visual Shazam for art

Sounds pretty cool:

Just pull up the app, point your phone’s camera to a painting on display and find all the information you want to know about the artwork. We’re planning to roll this out to museums around the world—so stay tuned.

 The app (for iOS and Android) also supports VR tours and more, and the Web version enables things like interactively exploring artists’ work (e.g. via this timeline of Van Gogh’s paintings).
