We were inspired by ZSL's two new tiger cubs. Fewer and fewer cubs are being born each year, and without a sustained conservation effort cubs like these will eventually disappear from the wild.

What it does

SnapCat uses your smartphone to give you statistics and information about your stuffed wildlife animals.

How we built it

Client App - React Native / Swift Server - Node.JS & MongoDB Cloud - IBM Watson

Challenges we ran into

Unfortunately, we didn't finish our prototype. We ran into some big blockers at about 3am on Sunday morning so we weren't able to demo the the app end-to-end during our presentation.

With that in mind, we chose to focus our remaining time on illustrating our idea instead of building out the whole app.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're really proud of our design.

What we learned

We learned about visual recognition APIs and 3D modeling.

What's next for SnapCat

Finishing it!
