Releasing a Solution to Declare "Don't Upload Me" and Launching Products on Kickstarter
A new barcode "XPAND Code" that links space and smartphones. It is a tool developed for space.
The privacy solution "XPAND Declaration" that uses XPAND Codes has been released. At the same time, a corresponding T-shirt and app were released on Kickstarter. When you read the T-shirt on a smartphone, a declaration that says "Don't Upload Me" appears. We plan to provide an API so that social media and search sites can recognize the declaration on the server and automatically prohibit uploads.

T-shirts and Apps that Can Declare "Don't Upload Me"
1. What You Can Do with The Product Now
Currently, two services are available:
2. What We Aim to Realize in the Future
With current AI technology, it is easy to identify and read XPAND Codes in images, to extract only people wearing the T-shirts, and to process their images.
In other words, many ICT companies can immediately begin reading XPAND Codes in photos and videos, and automatically process your portrait according to your declaration.
Looking ahead, we want to involve various people and companies and realize the following in the near future.
Most Advanced SNS - A warning appears if you try to upload a photo that contains the "Don't Upload Me" declaration.
Most Advanced Search Engine - Photos containing the "Don't Upload Me" declaration will not appear in search results, and their cache will be deleted.
Most Advanced Smartphone - A warning will be displayed if you try to photograph a person displaying the "Don't Upload Me" declaration.
Most Advanced Camera - The camera will blur any person you try to photograph who is displaying the "Don't Upload Me" declaration.
Most Advanced Photo Processing Software - The "Content-Aware Fill" command automatically removes people who are displaying the "Don't Upload Me" declaration.
First, we will launch this product in the form of a T-shirt, but by this summer we will release an XPAND Code issuing service that supports XPAND Declaration.
Anyone can attach XPAND Codes to anything, so you can make "Declarations"
3. Kickstarter Campaign
We have released 6 packs and 5 rewards on Kickstarter, including T-shirts compatible with the XPAND Declaration.
This campaign will run until April 10th.
XPAND K.K. provides XPAND Code, the barcode solution for space. XPAND Code links with your smartphone even from far away distances without ruining the design of the sign or scenery.
