All the bad product images from private sellers on selling platforms like ebay or Amazon
What it does
Sellers upload a 3D model of their product which can be placed into any environment via AR. Our hardware is a device that lets users attach their phone onto our device and takes photos from different angles. Using two motors, the phone is moved up and down the Y-axis while the second motor moves the camera around the x and z-axis. Our IOS app takes a stream of photos that are then passed into our neural network that rates all the photos taken. We hope our rating will give users insight on which photos look the best.
We even have financial components that tie in stocks and bank tracking via Goldman Sach's and Capital One's API. Our idea was to hopefully give sellers insight on how the market place is doing so they can have more informed insight on how to best sell their product. For the Capital One API we tracked transactions going into our seller's "corporate bank account" which will hopefully provide insight on if the cost and time is worth it for the profit made and the frequency of profit.
All of this to take our sellers from basic to not basic.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Sagemaker was very slow. Cardboard is very fragile. No sleep and too much caffeine takes it toll
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we were able to experiment with a lot of different technologies that somehow all loosely connected.
What we learned
Too much tech, not enough DevPost submissions. Originally our team worked on different components of our now combined projects, but it would have been nice to be allowed to be in the same team of colleagues and submit prototypes of different projects.
What's next for abg
More motors and more camera angles. Have our loosely connected components be more connected. Financial services will be better connected to our main product.
