Cortana needs eyes as well as ears

I really miss Bing Vision. Why MS trashed it I can't figure out but it's another thing on the pile of good features they have taken out.

I'd like to see Cortana vision. She can scan bar codes, QR codes, perform translations, OCR to OneNote, image match, etc. Perhaps even some augmented reality.

Even then, I'd really like some Cortana Vision

maybe something to identify whether something is a brute or not.

Creepiness aside, it's in the realm of possibility, considering the HowOld demo earlier this year.

Just ask Cortana, "Who is that?," or "How old does he look?," or some such.

Umm...Bing Vision is now a lens in the camera app.

And that was a terrible move when it happened. It's just not the same, had less functionality and buried into oblivion. It's not even in the insider's preview from what I can tell. It could be much better and fits in with the concept of a digital assistant.
