Snapchat’s new Context Cards use Snaps for spontaneous discovery | TechCrunch
Snapchat is introducing a new feature that will transform the experience of using the apps at a fundamental level. They’re called ‘Context Cards,’ and they’re new ways to find out more info about any Snap shared by users, providing access to things like restaurant reviews, reservations, Uber and Lyft ride hailing, contact information and more.

This is where Snapchat has a chance to turn its every day user engagement into a real world discovery and marketing platform that could potentially rival Yelp in terms of serendipitous discovery, and driving marketing value for restaurants, venues and destinations starting from a place of true interest, rather than approaching it from the perspective of providing a resource only to people already seeking that kind of info.

Snapchat’s Context Cards turn Snaps into location-based search queries
Snapchat continues to flip location-based search on its head. Earlier this year, Snapchat turned people’s Snaps into a spin on Google Maps’ Street View. Now the mobile app is converting them into queries.
On Tuesday, Snapchat rolled out a feature called Context Cards that enables people to access information about a venue tagged in a photo or video posted to the app. For example, a Snap may tag a restaurant, and a person viewing the Snap will be able to swipe up to get its address and directions, see reviews from Foursquare and book a reservation through OpenTable. Or a Snap may be included in a Snapchat-curated Our Story about a local harvest festival, and a person viewing it will be able swipe up to hail a Lyft ride to check it out in person. - via Catriona Brown

The piece is pinned in one location so the dimensions will be exact and to give the full view as though the sculptor is standing before your eyes. When users are near the exhibit a special lens will be available that allows them to visualize the sculpture.
