Squared Circle - Experimental Image Finder

Jim Bumgardner has produced a interesting tool which searches for images via colour. The current implementation is in Flash, and via a colour wheel and intensity slider allows the user to select a colour for which matching images are displayed.

The images used in the demo are all acquired from the Squared Circle group at flickr, which makes the demo all the more impressive. By concentrating on a group of images that are all the same format (square!) and of a diverse but themed subject (a circle that fills the image), this search mechanism can really concentrate on the aspect that does differ widely across the group - their colour.
