A little like Shazam: just take a picture of your favourite colour with your smartphone and immediately the APP will tell you which virtual colour card shades are closest to your snapshot. Simple and easy, just like sharing your preferences with friends on the main social networks:

We developed this application to present our colour card in a brand new manner – explains Lorenzo Meschini from Opera. Opera Egg allows correct colour matchings to be identified and then shared: the articles, equipped with their own technical record, can in fact be shared via e-mail or through the main social networks, thus offering a dedicated service to fashion operators and style bureaus.
