Slyce is a new innovative application that lets you search visually instead of typing words. One of the co-founder is Cameron Chell. Have you ever been out in public and see someone else with a product that you wonder what it is or where they got it from? Well Slyce is the app for you. Now with just a simple snap of a picture, Slyce will search its broad data base and find the product information for you. One of the main products that Slyce is used for is retail and fashion items. Companies use visual search start-ups to help their customers find products online. With just a simple inquiry from their website, commerce businesses can get their business on Slyce if they think Slyce would be a good fit for their customers. Visual search engines are becoming the new search avenue of the future. You will never have to ask a stranger where they bought something again.
There are 3 ways to use the Slyce application. The first way is the barcode or QR Code. Scan the barcode of a product and it will search and bring up the information on that product. The second way is the 2D mode. 2D mode uses the images metadata to find a 1:1 match of the product. The third way is 3D mode. In 3D mode Slyce uses more information from the photograph such as color, texture, pattern, style, and other unique features to find the product. It is a very user friendly application that is easy to use even for those that aren’t that tech savvy.
