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
