My name is Olu from Nigeria, I'm an entrepreneur and even though in a small scale business, I have been able to record little successes here and there.
Recently I have been thinking of creating an app unique to the saloon business slash social media. So here is what I will like to create
Essentially this app is supposed to take videos and pictures from a 30-40mins hair barbing session and convert it into
* 30 seconds time lapse video
* 2 edited headshot pictures of before & after look of the customer
* 10 seconds 3D headshot of a customer (starting with the before look of the person that changes to the after look as the person rotates on the barber's chair.
* 15 seconds GIF image that shows the the headshot of the customer slowly transforming from the before look to the after look. (Example -

The app should also
* Have Different filters to choose from
* Edit the pictures to modify the images with eg brightness, auto contrast, auto tine, color balance, sharpen, unsharpen, blur background, beauty filter, skin smoothening etc.
* apply background sound or music.
After all this the app will be able to send the edited images and videos directly to a whatsapp number and emails provided.
HOW WE INTENT TO MAKE USE OF THE APP.
A customer walks into a barbing salon for a hair cut as soon as he sits on the barber's chair the app is turned on from a smartphone that has been preinstalled and positioned to capture the headshot of the customer.
After getting the haircut, the customer is shown a preview of what the app has done and then asked if he will like to have a copy. If yes, he will be asked for his whatsapp number or email which will be punched into the app and it automatically sends it to him.
We intend to start by installing this app on about 209 devices. These devices will be situated in different barbing saloons across the city.
So as admin of this app we want to be able to
* know the how many times the app was used in each saloon generally and how many clients accepted to have the end product sent to them.
*we will like to have a data based of all numbers and emails it was sent to.
* we will like to get notifications of each usage for the different device at the different saloons realtime.
