Lampix is building the first Blockchain based ‘image mining’ network for augmented reality or any other computer vision systems.

The company is creating a new Blockchain that will hold {image,description} data-sets of real world objects. This data is a vital prerequisite for augmenting reality systems ranging from smartphones, wearable glasses, or their own Lampix product. Lampix transforms any flat surface into a smart surface using machine learning and computer vision.

Since starting Lampix in 2015, the company acquired paying clients like Bloomberg, PwC, large retail chains, and has a pipeline of approximately 200 notable companies inquiring about Lampix.

Lampix was among the 2% of companies who were accepted at the Highway 1 accelerator in San Francisco in fall 2016. We also won in March 2017 the best Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality company at SXSW festival, the largest festival of its kind in the world. To enable Lampix to reach its full potential, we need to build a billion-picture-and-description database.

“We will use PIX tokens to grow the data ecosystem through purchases and payments. Lampix is doing a crowdsale token launch (CTL) for PIX tokens from August 9, 2017 through August 18, 2017,” stated the team.

“The CTL is a vital component to bring the Lampix and database to fruition, which will play a key role in developing augmented reality applications across many devices. “
