Meet Matt Pacyga – the Chief Strategist at Canopy. He will be pitching Sensus and its API for developers at our next 3/20 event. If you haven’t heard about Sensus, it is a touch sensitive case for your smartphone that expands the functionality to your smartphone experience. Think of it as an accessory that enhances your apps. Gamers – watch out! You will probably see them on iPad – Tall & Grande and Android in the future.
BeauteCam is an iPhone app for analyzing human skin quality from photos taken with phone’s integrated camera. Using an aftermarket 27x macro lens that is attached to the service of the iPhone’s camera, BeauteCam analyzes a macro shot of the user’s skin and suggests ways to improve aesthetics and skin health.
It’s likely that BeauteCam probably employs some form of OCR (Optical Character Recognition) algorithm to search for indicators of various skin conditions. According to their description, this seems to take place serverside.
