Nutrition is important. Yet, watching out for unhealthy foods is surprisingly difficult and even more so if there is no packaging available which would tell you about the nutritional value of what you buy. We came up with this idea which allows people to just take a picture of whatever they are considering to buy and inform them both about the nutritional value and what physical activity certain serving sizes equal to.
What it does
Identify foods from a picture and inform the user about the nutritional value. TRex and cactus game as an easteregg.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
API was poorly documented and Android Studio is a bit qwerky
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our first ever Android app at a hackathon :) Oh, and my first Hackathon as well... ;)
What we learned
How to combine web and native mobile technologies. Working at nighttime and nonstop for two days straight.
What's next for OMNOMNOM
Testing testing testing.
