id•this – Human Powered Identification of Anything or Anyone
http://idthis.org/

id•this is human powered identification of anything or anyone. Just snap a photo of something you’d like identified (like a breed of dog, a type of car, that weird gelatinous blob sitting on your plate, or even that celebrity sitting next to you that you can’t remember their name, etc…) and then send it to be identified. This is a community effort. You can join in and help identify photos too! This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
