Have you ever had a bunch of different food ingredients in your fridge, but didn't know how to combine them into a delicious meal??? Well now there's an app that can do it for you!
What it does
Food Ai scans your refrigerator with your cell phone camera, then generates tags. These tags are then sent to the Hot Oven API and returns a collection of recipes that you can make using the ingredients found in your fridge.
How I built it
Hybrid framework (Ionic framework) for the front end, NODEJS for back end, AWS S3 buckets to store images, Clarifiai API to generate tags, Hot Oven API to generate recipes, Green Sock Animation Platform (GSAP) for animations
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We were pleased with the fluidity of the data linkage in our app; we were able to have data linked to the mobile application without relying on push notifications.
What I learned
We gained knowledge of photo recognition and how to smoothly implement photo recognition for mobile apps and other software purposes.
What's next for Food Ai
Food Ai will be coming soon to the iOS/ android stores!
