What it does
RMBR is a camera, which can be integrated in sunglasses, connected to a portable raspberry pi that can take and process images of people around you and let you know who they are through a notification through the watch app we built.
How we built it
The Raspberry Pi is running a Python Server which keeps listening to the mobile application we built for camera triggers. It processes the image and returns the people in it by going through your Facebook friends.
