Great item recommendation
My dad has a shellfish allergy. He ate a dish once, that happened to have some very well-disguised crab. Riding with him to the hospital was the scariest thing that ever happened to me.
What it does
DietAR is a one-step app that displays nutritional and allergen information for prepackaged foods and restaurant dishes.
How we built it
For the prepackaged food, we scanned the universal product code and pulled nutritional and allergen information from a variety of databases. For the restaurant dishes, we used Clarifi's api to scan a dish and list its ingredients.
Challenges we ran into
Using AR in react native, getting clarifi's api to work, uniting the databases, performance
Accomplishments that we're proud of
our final product- a working, streamlined, user-friendly app that displays allergen and nutritional information.
What we learned
A lot about allergens, how to use, and how not to use, clarifi's api, using ar in a non-intrusive manner
What's next for DietAR
increase our database and get more nutritional information, and polish
