We present a system which allows to request information on physical objects by taking a picture of them. This way, using a mobile phone with integrated camera, users can interact with objects or ''things'' in a very simple manner. A further advantage is that the objects themselves don't have to be tagged with any kind of markers. At the core of our system lies an object recognition method, which identifies an object from a query image through multiple recognition stages, including local visual features, global geometry, and optionally also metadata such as GPS location. We present two applications for our system, namely a slide tagging application for presentation screens in smart meeting rooms and a cityguide on a mobile phone. Both systems are fully functional, including an application on the mobile phone, which allows simplest point-and-shoot interaction with objects. Experiments evaluate the performance of our approach in both application scenarios and show good recognition results under challenging conditions.
