The application for photo processing
Volodin Andrés learns voronezh - at the national university in the faculty of mathematics. Last year and a half, the developer has been creating низкополигональной (low-poly) game for designing the images, the stage, and sound levels.
To facilitate and expedite the process, it has developed an algorithm that has deployed a lot of resources, "Game on the LP-style and time again quite work routine and boring. Flying in the Illustartor, drawing triangles, it is not very interesting. In addition, export wanted light LP-images in SVG format, so that it was possible "распарсить" as a set of points. "
As a result of Volodin he developed the Mac application where it can accelerate their algorithm 100 times - now it is processed instantly more than 70% of images. "For 99% of people is a filter in which almost no to low-poly-style fashion. For designers, it is a tool to facilitate routine work. For me - assistant in the creation of another project, "said the developer.
The application (not yet available in the App Store) Volodin did for five afternoons after school: "The first days after the declaration of insolvency of the WWDC, wondering if start because there was very little time, and also knew that many students send the product they produced several months. In the end, he decided to try his luck. "
The game emodji
Ivan Grachev studying at Moscow State University and working on several projects. Two of the request to participate in the WWDC Scholarship was sent.

Students worked on the application in time of the study, therefore, to maximize efficiency shared responsibility for the couple: Кочетов responsible for creating a 3D model and writing code, and Бабинцев by creating фотосфер and the design of the application itself.
After successful testing of the application in several schools expressed their desire to acquire the experience of high school Бауманского - Кочетков and Бабинцев now working on creating a similar application for more than one school of Moscow.
