What Do Image Recognition And Physical World Hyperlinks Have In Common?

Another mobile marketing puzzle for Pondering Primate readers.

How well do you know your logos and images.

Consumers and brands will soon get a (_________ ) when physical world hyperlinks get turned on and cell phones have the ability to scan them with optical character recognition



This one is a little harder huh?



Don't you wish you could just click on the logo and have it recognized?
Soon you will.


You didn't think I was going to make it as easy as yesterday did ya?

Imagine being able to click on any one of these and being directed to the company's site of their choice.

See how powerful a physical world hyperlink could be?

You forgot one more important thing that an image recognition software could do, like Mobot's, by taking a picture of words of the company's name so you don't have to key it in. At least you'd have the option. Why limit just to images? Have the ability to recognize graphically spiffed up logo names or names of companies that are spelled out in not so boring fonts.

Koko,

You don't have the answer to the quiz?

I guess I stumped everyone.

"connection"


Once it's turned on, consumers and brand names will have a way to connect to each other via the permission based marketing concept.

Hey, I *know* you're enjoying this.

Scott Shaffer said...

Next batter please.

How many symbols are there?

That will give you the missing item for this sentence

"consumers and brands will soon get a (fill in the blank) when physical world hyperlinks get turned on and cell phones have the ability to scan them"

A swing and a miss..

Don't you wish you could just click on the logo with Mobot?

Keep trying.. 13 logos and it fits in the phrase above.

I'm glad I stumped you Larry :)

Oh, Van. Another brain teaser. How I love these. Let's see here...

1. T
2. $#(@*#$!
3. Frito-lay or Cheetos. Go with F.
4. Orlando Magic (O) or NBA (N)?
5. C
6. T
7. Sesame Street? WTF? S?
8. $#(@*#$!
9. Indiana? This is a logo?
10. Nemo...or Pixar?
11. $#(@*#$!
12. D
13. E
14. T, if "thirteen" is the final clue.

That leaves me with "T_FOCTS_IN_DET", or absolutely no idea, in laymans terms. But I'll have another look at this and get back to you.

Thank you oh so much for getting me hooked on this time-eating conundrum.

Good Job Grimmers
This one drove me up the wall

Larry said...

Good One PP You really had me stumped!

But...but...but...that's the TransAmerica building. And that's the Nigerian flag. And that's the Cheeto cat for Frito-Lay. How do you get D.I.R. from that bit?

Scott Shaffer said...

Good Job Grimmers!

You all made the assumption that the answer was one word and that the first letter of each logo was in order.

If you want I am working on another one that involves barcodes.
