Viewzi, the Visual Search Engine

I discovered several cool tools yesterday at the BIGGER Conference at Georgia Southern University—one of these tools is Viewzi, the visual search engine.  In a nutshell, Viewzi searches a wide range of content, including websites, videos, mp3 files , images, news sites, and Google Books; it can generate tag clouds related to your search and allow you to search content related to those tags, too!  Here is a visual representation it generated for me for a Google timeline on stem cells:

I think students, especially visually oriented learners, will enjoy this graphic way of searching and exploring results!  I am looking forward to exploring this fun alternative search engine.
