    Snapcardsteron Kickstarter

    After two months of testing the Snapcardsters image collecting tool, we hand it over to the kickstarter crowd and ask them for support.

    We believe, that building a precise scanner needs time and lots of data. Together we can bring you the most feature-rich app for magic.

    Closed Beta

    We launched our closed beta version of Snapcardsters image collecting tool.

    Building a precise and fast scanner for magic cards needs a lot of time, energy and especially lots of images to teach the machine learning.

    Help us by submitting correctly labeled cards to improve the upcoming scanning technology.
