We like to surf, current website like magicseaweed.com are pretty bad
What it does
texts you when beaches you're subscribed to are surfable
How we built it
scraped webcam feeds, ran OpenCv and clustering on these streams to get data on the waves. Ran some calculations on these metrics. used twillio to send SMS to you if we determine if the waves are good
Challenges I ran into
Machine Learning and clustering is hard.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We did automatic clustering at a hackathon
What We learned
HTML form are a pain. OpenCv is cool, but hard. We're not as good as basic vector calculus as we thought we were.
What's next for Doode
We'll probably go home and sleep, might eat some food first. We might continue the project, would need more compute power, hosing, better feeds and money for the sms service...so maybe not.
