About

We're about to change your life.

Buttster is a new app (for iPhone and Android) that uses proprietary "butt recognition technology" to identify different types of butts in the wild. Buttster uses advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence to classify a person's unique butt based on size and shape. Buttster can identify over 500 different types of butts with scientific precision.

Built for butt enthusiasts.

For thousands of years, people have been fascinated by the butt. True butt enthusiasts have created poems, paintings, sculptures, songs, and short stories to show their appreciation for this beautiful part of the body. Butt appreciation is so common that it stretches across age, race, culture, and gender - ultimately uniting humanity on our small planet. Modern-day butt enthusiasts often take photos to catalog and share the butts they see in the wild. But this experience can be low-tech and it's often hard to identify what you've seen and where. That's why we created Buttster. It's a high-tech tool for the modern butt-watcher. 

We need your help.

Building "butt recognition technology" is hard. You have to spend hours, weeks, and even months training artificial intelligence to identify all the different types of butts. Buttster is designed to recognize a butt and then classify it according to its unique size and shape. For example, is the butt in a particular photograph a high butt (called "The Aviator"), or a flat butt (called "The Parking Lot"), or a lean butt (called "The Marathoner"), or one of the hundreds of other types of butts? The Buttster app has state-of-the art technology that leverages all of the latest innovations: artificial intelligence, machine learning, neural networks, and object recognition. Building this technology is expensive, which is why we need your help. If you want to see Buttster in the app store, please support our campaign.

Risks and challenges

In order to ship the Buttster app by August, our scientists, programmers, developers, analysts, designers, researchers, and robots will need to work around the clock. There will be a lot of long nights. Our team will need to review literally millions of photos of butts to create the science and math that will make Buttster successful. The good news is... there have been major advancements in object recognition and facial recognition technology over the past couple of years. Lower cloud computing costs make it easier (and more affordable) for machines to study millions of images and identify patterns that can feed into algorithms. We believe that Buttster can make the world a better place, and we're dedicated to pushing the envelope for science. The bad news is... almost no one is doing research on butt recognition today. Companies are more interested in identifying cats, dogs, bicycles, cars, and faces. So, the Buttster app is setting sail for uncharted territory. That means we will need the best and brightest minds to make this possible. If the project is funded, we'll provide weekly updates and behind-the-scenes videos showing the progress for our research.
