I recently used the Google Lens App to identify a boombox from an online picture. It will work directly from your camera or from a photo on your phone. It might be useful for those hard to find or ID items. The app let's you isolate the item by cropping or you get everything (hats, pants, sneakers etc.)in the picture. Thought the group might find it useful. See screenshot below.

Dystopian Future. It gives me chills what lies ahead.

Terminator plot was a comedy compared to the reality.

The only problem is that the results identified the wrong boxes. The pictures are correct, both of Sharp GF 9696's but Google Lens has identified them as a GF 8787 and GF 525. So the lesson learned is... technology is great but old obsessed collectors will always know better! ;-)
