Spring 2021 PORTFOLIO

Argus

By using computer vision technologies, Argus’ product can affordably detect threats like guns in real-time. This way, security personnel can be automatically notified and provided with the exact location of the potential threat, saving lives by cutting down on the response time. Previously, this would’ve only been possible by hiring people to constantly watch cameras which is far too cost-prohibitive for most.

 

Big & Mini

More than 60% of Americans report feeling lonely. And, COVID has exacerbated this. That’s why Big & Mini, a platform that connects youth and seniors to combat loneliness and bridge the generation gap. To date, we have connected over 2000 users from 50 states and 22 countries and been featured in 40+ media publications including the Today Show.

Clarity

Clarity reimagines the way you view your communications as being in order of relevancy, rather than the age-old chronological system. We strongly believe that the latest message is not the one you need to see right now, and that this crucial mistake is what makes trying to keep on top of all your emails, Slacks, messages, and to-do items feel like trying to drink from a firehose. Instead, the content of your messages is one of the key factors in how you think about it. That’s why Clarity works with you to automatically bring what’s relevant to your attention in realtime, so that your mail and your to-do list can become one and the same without overwhelming you.

Lung Buddy

A wearable for people who want to quantify their coughs — more portable and comfortable than anything else in the market. Measure long-term progress to gauge medication efficacy, or use it for emergency alerts during flare-ups.

Frame

Introducing Frame, an augmented reality art marketplace that lets users preview art on their walls before they buy. Frame combats two of the art market’s largest problems: one on the seller side, and one on the buyer side. Sellers have always struggled with accessibility: galleries are exclusive and expensive, and private sellers have limited visibility. Buyers, meanwhile, hesitate to purchase art before having a clear idea of what it would look like in their own space.

GoalGroup

GoalGroup is an iOS app that helps people achieve their goals through social accountability. Users can join a goal filled with other users so that they can send messages, check in daily, watch their streak grow, answer daily questions, and find the support they need to stay motivated.

Guard Core

Guard Core is for those involved in the sport of Color/Winter Guard. From the guard members who utilize the sports equipment to the coaches who build guard shows, Guard Core aims to solve the sport’s pain points. Our first goals are to tackle the flag pole product, which is currently put together with electrical tape, and the issues with purchasing from individual sites, which causes delays in completing the full show. With Guard Core, we are building the future of guard, starting with innovating the flag pole design and a show simulator integrated into purchasing products from one website. Unlike the current guard product websites and companies, our products and services will innovate the existing equipment and offer a unique customer experience focused on building and empowering the community while instilling sustainable practices to decrease waste.
 
 

Musée Beauty

Musée Beauty is all about self expression through makeup. Each collection is inspired by an art movement, and we create products that inspire people to think of makeup as an art form. Our goal is to have people feel confident wearing creative styles of makeup whether it be a wild artistic look to post on Instagram, or a colorful eyeliner look to go to the grocery store. Our brand targets creatives that wear their artistry like a badge of honor, and want easy-to-use makeup products so they can easily flaunt their individuality.

OctoShop

OctoShop is a browser extension that helps shoppers find what they need in-stock and at the best prices. Once a user installs the tool, OctoShop will serve as an invisible hand, waiting until the user comes across a product page on a website like Amazon or Best Buy. When on a product page, OctoShop will activate and search the entire internet to find an alternative retail website with a better price or faster shipping. Our users will always get the best deal when shopping online without any of the hard work of manual price research. Since its launch in June, OctoShop has acquired over 14,000 users and has been featured on CNET, Fox Austin, and Boston 25.

We allow for an affordable way for students to get items they are in need of straight to their door in a snap of a finger. 

TipX

TipX is a digital tip jar that revolutionizes the way gratuities are given and received by tippers and “tippees” (employees). TipX is a platform designed to help employees generate incremental income through contactless QR code technology. By incorporating Apple and Google Pay, TipX fast tracks the checkout process for the consumer to create a convenient tipping experience.
