About Standard Cyborg

Standard Cyborg is building the platform for computer vision. We create the cloud and edge tools that developers and non-developers need to build, deploy, and improve solutions quickly. Our goal is to multiply the potential of the real world by making computer vision accessible to all.

Our customers use our tools to power a broad range of applications. These teams use our SDK, ML models, and platform tools to capture, analyze, and organize 2D/3D scenes. We have customers who:

  • generate 3D assets for AR/VR training for manufacturing
  • measure faces for eyewear customization and glasses sizing
  • quantify foot shape for shoe sizing and insole customization
  • enable users to generate models for custom breast prostheses post-mastectomy at home
  • ... and many more using our consumer demo app, Capture, the most popular 3D scanning app

Here is a taste of the kind of problems we work on. We've built the majority of our technology in-house.

Our Culture

We value originality in thought and humility in our convictions.

We’re endlessly curious and tenacious in our effort to make the complex field of computer vision approachable, humane, and easy to deploy for our customers.

We are pragmatic, not dogmatic. No ideas are taken personally, and all ideas are open to discussion.
