Finderr is made up of a group of students that met at a hackathon at the University of Oxford. Our win of the Microsoft Azure Champ Challenge there inspired us to submit our project to the Microsoft Imagine Cup, and we are proud to announce that our application has been selected as the winner of the 2019 Imagine Cup EMEA Finals!
The main goal of Finderr is to allow visually impared people to easily search for lost objects around their home. This dosen't mean you have to have a visual imparement to use it though. Finderr is designed to be used by everyone, people like you and me.
