Microsoft's New App Lets You Show Off Collection of Real Things Digitally

Microsoft's New App Lets You Show Off Collection of Real Things Digitally

For example, if you love Porsches and happen to have a garage full of the German sportscars, you can photograph each model via the app.

Thinga.me is a new app for the iPhone aimed at people that want to create and share collections of real things.

So for example, if you love Porsches and happen to have a garage full of the German sportscars, you can photograph each model via the app. It will crop and treat the image so that it has no background and then the pictures can be grouped as a collection or gallery.

More likely though is that someone who has a pristine set of original Star Wars figures or Beanie Babies wants a way of displaying and sharing them.

The new app, developed by Microsoft Garage, one of the company's more experimental arms is itself an experiment. The idea behind it is to let users "share things, not photos" but there's every chance Thinga.me could grow into something else entirely if enough people start playing with it.
