September 23 at 23:59 GMT was the deadline for submission of Intel Perceptual Computing Challenge projects. We squeaked in at the last minute, and we can’t wait to know the results. Instead of going crazy waiting, I decided to write about our project and how we prepared for this contest.
Fair warning: this isn’t necessarily a success story. Nobody can predict if our project will succeed or not. Many things could happen that we aren’t able to anticipate. Whether we win or lose, we hope that our story will be of some use to other developers.
