Thinglink launches rich pictures, plans images 2.0 | Finland |
The web may have revolutionized video and audio, but the humble still image hasn’t altered much over the years.

Five years ago, Ulla Engeström came up with the idea for Thinglink, a service that would be able to recognize any object and link it to information on the Internet. In that time, the world has changed, and so has the company. In fact, last year the business, which is based in Helsinki, Finland, underwent something of a transformation, brought in highly respected Nokia technologist Janne Jalkanen as CTO and raised $1 million in funding from Nordic investors Inventure and Lifeline.
