Your underwear is not Apt – ML app (pt.2)

Leaving off from the last post where we wanted to create an app that would be able to discern the underwear my friend makes, called Apt, or basically any other underwear. To do this we need an create an Image Classifier that uses Machine Learning. How it works is that you give it an image […]

Negative Thought Cards (pt.3)

I’m not quite happy with the look and feel of the app just yet, but for this post let’s make the Random Card Button look similar to the card above it. I am aiming for a neomorphic design that is minimal, light, and still as easy to navigate as the old design but looks clean. […]

Customizing SwiftUI Toggle

On the Settings screen, of the Negative Thought Cards app, I thought it could be nice to have some of the app details be available if the user wants it. A simple toggle switch will do – toggle the switch on and it will show the user an extended version of the Settings screen. Toggle […]

Negative Thought Cards – fonts (pt.2)

What I like about app development is that it often feels more like a growth-mindset than a static one. It’s carpentry vs ceramics: measure twice, cut once vs fail fast, fail often.

AR street art community project (pt.1)

TLDR: Community-made videos to be played over, with augmented reality, street art murals around Muizenberg. It could be seasonal, or around tent-pole events, or for a one-off event. Here’s a proof of concept I did for fun called: True book titles. To do: Catalogue murals, get creatives to make content, code it into an app […]

Negative Thought Cards – building a stoic tool (pt.1)

“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” ― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations Would you live a happier, and more productive life, if you could react to your “negative” thoughts as you choose? My guess is that you would. Sometimes my mind stops me from doing what I would […]
