Inspiration

Wanting to be able to work out with guidance at home without having to pay a certified trainer or instructor to help you through the process.

What it does

This app allows users to learn yoga poses through pose detection software. It captures body pose in real-time and compares it to the actual pose required for each position.

How we built it

Built using Android Studio with Kotlin, incorporating Tensorflow lite for the pretrained body pose detection neural network - PoseNet into the app.

Challenges we ran into

Getting Android Studio set up for for the right version on 4 different laptops. Working with a completely new language and technology in only 24 hours.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Succeeding at working with a completely new language and technology in only 24 hours! The app works!

What we learned

Coding with Kotlin, building apps keeping in mind concepts from material design and incorporating neural networks into an android application.

What's next for Bendy Buddy

  1. More poses to learn from.
  2. Learn the right stances for gym exercises as well as dance moves.
  3. Build a social community through the app for users to meet like-minded people and work out with them.
