People make bad food choices which often leads to malnutrition and obesity. To help break poor eating habits, PaperCheck advises the users to make better decisions.
What it does
When users take a picture of their shopping list, ShopBright analyzes each grocery and gives feedback on the nutrition values.
How I built it
The team connected different APIs (Google Cloud Vision/Cloud) and Flask using Python.
Challenges I ran into
We had no prior experience in the languages, APIs, and the libraries. While it was easier to work on the individual elements, putting them altogether was difficult as there were less guidelines online.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Having built a server from scratch and being able to create a user interface that integrates different systems.
What I learned
Teamwork, working with new technology, and asking for help
What's next for ShopBright
We will publish PaperCheck at an App Store and use a credible database to inform the users. Further, we will implement a user-friendly UI.
