We want to discourage packaging food, and suggest instead the healthy receipies.
What it does
Scans barcode off the packaging and suggests receipe out of the general product category.
How we built it
Android app, and basically fusion of lots of Api.
Challenges we ran into
As we were trying to connect brand names to the main ingredient in a product, after a lot of tinkering and thinking we decided to use Microsoft Concept Graph to simplify the task, and it more or less worked.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We stayed up all night, made good friends, and almost working product.
What we learned
Mobile development, teamwork,
What's next for Receipeasy
Image instead of barcode scanning, Lots of food analytics for encouraging healthy diet.
