In everyday life, a lot of people have been through hard time of picking the right restaurant for a dinner along an urban street. Although by using Google Map or Yelp, we can get to know nearby restaurants, it is still a pain to switch our attention back and forth between the mobile screen and the real-world street. So we built an app, utilizing AR technology, to render the related information of restaurants directly on the camera view.
What it does
This project is a mobile app that incorporate AR technology to deliver nearby restaurant information right on the camera frame.
How I built it
We used ARKit in swift 4.0, Google Places API, as well as Yelp API.
Challenges I ran into
The time, 12 hours, is way too limited.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What's next for IKnowFood
Design better UI, better means for user interaction, and probably build our own database instead of relying on APIs
