Business Cards that we saw on a table

What it does

Reads business cards

How I built it

By using the users phone camera and google cloud OCR, we take a picture and read the text on a business card into a text file. We then parse the text into relevant categories and store them into a contact onto your phone.

Challenges I ran into

We started by using tesseract for the OCR but it did not work very well.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We made a phone app that reads business cards

What I learned

how to make a phone app and how to take advantage of github

What's next for BC Read

Making it an app that can stand alone without adobe phonegap
