All of us are very serious athletes, so we constantly use apps on our phones to measure water and sugar consumption, but we found that we had to use various apps that all used the fundamental concept: use an algorithm to calculate daily limits. In addition, soon we will reach the drinking age so it is important to monitor our alcohol consumption. So, we decided to create an application and an accompanying website that compiles all of these separate applications together.
What it does
We use a comprehensive algorithm that calculates the daily limits of an individual based on gender and weight. Then, as the user adds information in the add, the app information page will continue to update showing how much more water, caffeine, and sugar the user can consume to reach the daily limit. Most importantly, it displays the estimated Blood Alcohol Concentration based on inputs and displays if it is safe to drive. The accompanying Website provides information on the app and a short game for your entertainment!
How we built it
We used Android Studio and Unity to make the app and the game, respectively. We used Amazon Web Services to host the website with a .tech domain.
Challenges we ran into
We had multiple issues with the arraylists and with the setup of the website since we were beginners with AWS and Android Studio, but we all worked together and were able to put the app together.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the vast number of things we were able to accomplish in such a short amount of time. We created a fully functioning game, a website, and an app all in one night!
What's next for Drinkapedia: The App that's better than Wikipedia
We hope to expand to iOS and Apple Watch, to make it convenient for our users.
