A new software program developed by students at National Taiwan University (NTU), called Flora, can be used to photograph different flowers and instantly retrieve information about the buds from an archive of over 60 species, according to Taiwan Today.

"The app searches for database matches and generates detailed biological information," NTU assistant professor Chen Yen-yang told the news source.
