eyePlorer

eyePlorer is an interesting new research tool.  It’s a “knowledge machine” rather than a search engine, but it does provide information about a chosen topic.  According to the German developers,

Our approach is inspired by current research results from cognitive science, computational linguistics and neurobiology. We aim at radically improving the way users interact with knowledge and information online. Recent studies show that human thought processes have a strong visual component and that the brain can process images significantly faster than textual information. We are convinced that it is time for innovative, interactive, visual methods of working with and discovering facts and information instead of wading through ever longer lists of documents and search results.
