For more than a decade the Virtual Toy Chest has been helping action figure fans to identify their toys. We are proud to introduce our latest innovation: V.E.R.N., the Visual Equivalence Recognition Network. V.E.R.N. is an intelligent agent that is capable of automatic toy recognition, and can identify an action figure from a photograph. Simply upload your pic in .jpg format and put V.E.R.N. to work. Right now the program is in its initial beta stage. It can identify figures from the following toy series:
We hope to expand it to other toy series soon.
V.E.R.N. is not the smartest robot on the block and is easily distracted. For best results follow these instructions when taking the photograph.
The following is an example of an acceptable photograph.
Here are some things to avoid.
Once you have taken the photograph click on the following link to go to the Picture Upload Page
V.E.R.N. will launch automatically once the picture is uploaded. You may be prompted to log in several times. This is normal.
