Thinga.Me has been developed to help us understand how people may like to digitize and share their personal collections of possessions.
The app uses image segmentation technology developed at Microsoft Research to extract objects from their background in photos. These objects can then be arranged in to a collection using a using different themes and layouts.
Thinga.me is currently in a closed trial, however, if you would like to use Thinga.Me to create your own collections, and help us develop the app further, you can sign up to get the app here.
How we think people might use Thinga.Me
- Serious collectors sharing their items online with others who share the same passion as them.
- Parents, who want to scan in and segment their kid’s artwork, to both archive it and share it with friends and family.
- People who want to archive physical items in their basement, and want to keep a digital record of it.
