Beyond the five sense organs. In addition to sight, smelltastetouch, and hearing, humans also have awareness of balance, pressure, temperature, pain, and motion. This may involve the coordinated use of multiple sensory organs.

At birth, the basic 5 sensory organs are proactive of a homo sapien. The remaining develop over a period of time and you master the awareness features by the end of the teenage. And maybe, just maybe, if you choose to meditate in the Himalayas on one foot there is a grim possibility of gaining the eternal 6th sense. Phewww. That seems like a life time, I know.


Brief Features of a ‘GOOD’ search bar

Imagine a scenario where the ever evolving technology of numerous years can be integrated at once in one search bar. This search bar analyses your data and lets the user feel what the query is.

Let me just list out the capabilities of the technology and the search bar that would be developed :

  • Reliable
  • Scalable
  • Fault Tolerant
  • Full-Text Search
  • Faceted Search
  • Scalability: Caching, Replication, Distributed Search
  • Near Real time indexing
  • Geospatial Search
  • Advanced Search options: Synonyms, Stopword based on similarity and proximity
  • Highlighting, Database integration, Rich Document Handling
  • Queries:
    • Single and multi term
    • +,-, AND, OR, NOT
    • Range Queries: Time Stamp, Price
    • Boosting queries (sorting the preference in search results)
    • Fuzzy Search (words similar in spelling)
    • Proximity Search (looking for terms within a gap of few words)

These are the basic visible features that are accessible via the search bar. Unimaginable insights are provided via the data visualization tools offered. There’s no limit to what you can achieve.

The search bar would appeal to the sight, leave an everlasting aroma for your nose to smell. Will make you believe in something your tongue might have never tasted or will ever taste. Almost providing you with the sensation of talking to a real person.

Be dazzled by the functionality of Solr
