An experimental service called retrievr lets you draw a simple sketch with your mouse and it searches for photographs that resemble it. It does seem to work, but it looks like it gives a lot of false positives, meaning the search parameters are too broad. Also, the drawing pad you get is very basic (smallest size brush is like 10 pixels), so no Picasso's here. Still interesting technology though!
