We wanted to make an application that allowed for some modicum of privacy when looking at confidential information from prying eyes. This was the basis for our application.
What it does
It opens a privacy window when two people are looking at the computer, and has an anti-social mode that opens a window and shoots you call on your phone so you don't have to talk to whoever came up to you.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into some GUI obstacles by trying to make the GUI in C++ and found difficulties with making it in Electron due to inexperience among most of the team. Detecting faces instead of ceiling vents was easier said than done. Keeping our spirits high, and ourselves awake was a challenge.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud that we made a fully functioning GUI in Electron for our program, and got the AI to detect faces for the privacy window.
What we learned
Don't try to build a GUI in C++ How to use Tkinter for faster python development How to build nice looking interfaces with Electron Common facial recognition techniques, and strategies to improve recognition.
What's next for The Privacy Protector
Adding cross OS capabilities for the program. Although we have seperate versions that can run on every OS.
