culturecam.eu is developed by Space And Time (Spild af Tid) in collaboration with Aalto University, Austrian Institute of Technology and Europeana.
The online tool offers designers and artists the possibility of accessing and exploring cultural heritage material from the European platform europeana.eu in a fun, playful and intuitive way by using a webcam.
The aim of the tool is to stimulate creative people to dive into our common cultural heritage and re-use Europeana content as sources for new derivative designs and artefacts:
Take a photo of any object or texture with your webcam and culturecam.eu will provide you with a set of images that are similar or related in color, shape or pattern.
All images are under public domain and free to use.
