An App that uses an off-site database to identify just about anything.

Looking for: Advisor, Biz developer, Designer, Developer, Engineer, Marketer, Product manager, Sales person
Okay, before I go into detail about this idea I would like to talk about the inspiration behind the idea. If you have ever watched "Pokémon" yes, the popular Anime series that has taken the early 2000's by storm. They have a futuristic idea that could be used in today's modern world with existing technology. In the show they have something called a "Pokedex" pretty much a handheld encyclopedia that can identify unknown pokemon tell the user useful information about that pokemon.

My idea is to pretty much use that fictional technology, and bring it into reality. Imagine one day walking through the park and you spot a plant on the ground, you don't know if the plant is poisonous or not, so you pull out your smartphone, have the camera hover over to detect the image of the plant, and then the app verbally tell you information about the plant. Same thing if you run into a animal while camping, the app will tell you all about the animal: if its venomous, edible, etc. If you think about it, this idea can be used for everything, it just needs a pre existing database in which to retrieve its data.

I'm really surprised that this app has not been made yet, but it can definitely change the way we look up information. I already have the idea for the app I would just need a team to help make this a reality. Inbox me if you are interested in joining me on making this happen!
