Hi, i created this unofficial Google thingie last week. Hope you like it: search-by-drawing.franz-enzenh ...

What it does:
   * You draw something on an HTML5 canvas.
   * Click on Search
   * Image gets converted into a base64 encoded data uri
   * Image data gets send to server (powered by Heroku)
   * Image gets uploaded to Amazon S3
   * The Amazon S3 Image URL gets communicated back to your browser.
   * Browser gets redirected to Google Search by Image

hope you like it.

Cool! If you can improve the HTML5 canvas, it will be even better!

[put at-character here]Franz: Some examples:

1. The current palette is not very good in my opinion.
2. There's no undo function.
3. I want to see how big the brush is before painting on the canvas.
