How TSCG was made
The idea flourished back when I was enrolled in my Master’s Degree. At a particular Computer Vision lecture we were detecting people through their Iris to access that person’s info and it struck me: why can’t I do this with my webcam for my thousands of Magic: the Gathering cards? It would be such a great help! I got started developing of the algorithm right away on my computer using Matlab. And this is how this all began..!
At my job interview I got the opportunity to present my idea to my future Boss.
They loved the idea, we started molding and Business Model to provide a plan for the product we would build.
The project came as a success and me, Eduardo Vieitas and Rui Milagaia formed TSCG to expand our vision into something bigger.
Where we are
Web Summit 2016
We were one of the selected Startups to participate at Lisbon WebSummit 2016 through the Alpha Startups Program. We talked to a lot of people and the feedback was great – and with this feedback we confirmed that we had something a lot bigger than just MTG Manager – there was a lot of interest in Big Data applications of this technology. And the idea for BigAR begins...!
RALI 2016 / RALI 2017
Every year we participate in RALI, the only event dedicated to Augmented Reality in Lisbon, and in Portugal for that matter, as well as the only one in Portuguese. This is a meetup of professionals, experts and enthusiast of the AR technology where the latest and most innovative AR solutions developed in Portugal are presented – a platform to spread the word about our work, validate new ideas and meet possible partners.
The first event where we presented the idea of BigAR! We were up against 13 other Startups and pitched our idea to a jury in 3 minutes. We were one of the 7 selected for the 2nd phase which will take place on May 6th, 2017 - wish us luck!
