Hey, my name is Luke
What are you working on these days?
Right now I'm working on virtual tourism and using machine learning / cv for 3d rendering.
My current product is Mused (https://mused.org/), and you might've seen us with the virtual guided tour inside the Great Pyramid of Giza.
What can the WIP community help you with right now?
I'm trying to understand how to monetize because my server bills are really high ($6k/mo in Nov $3k/mo in Dec)
I have 50k users and 2k users signing up per day
Right now I just have donate links and require a login to view some of our tours
Should I try to spin off our tour-building tools and sell them to a different market (real estate, corporate education, etc) or make more comprehensive membership experience for people who donate? Or provide institutional membership for schools teaching our tours?
What can you help others with?
I can help easily share huge 3d datasets, make NeRFs for AI-assisted 3d rendering of spaces from image/video (like this https://twitter.com/asierrios/status/1601778161380835328), or provide information about product development, python/js/c#/etc, 3d capture, etc.
Also if you're looking for something meaningful between product dev, can help you get connected to local archaeological projects and historic places where you're living.
Something else you want to share?
