Lest the name Qwiki makes you question what internet and tech mavens are really talking about whenever they drool over the idea of an interactive internet, rest assured. A qwiki is not what you think it is. 

In a nutshell, qwikis could be the future of the Internet.

Qwiki looks like a search engine, but once you type a term that you`re interested in, it combs the web for all videos, blog posts, images and articles on that search term and puts together a nice little quick video summary (a quick wiki or a “qwiki”) of the whole thing, with links to each article, video and blog post embedded in the video itself, and topped-up with a live narration accompanied by subtitles.

Inspired by a scene from the hit Disney movie Wall-E, watch the Qwiki team demo their tool at TechCrunch Disrupt a few days ago.

Want to try Qwiki for yourself? You can. Just go to their homepage and sign up for a trial account. You get to test a limited number of their “qwikis” and watch the magic unfold.
