We really wanted to play with APIs we weren't familiar with, and explore new mobile technologies.
What it does
Wikidex gathers content-specific information from the objects it recognizes within a camera's frame - You point at the object, and it'll tell you want it is!
How We built it
By being casual.
Challenges I ran into
Getting in line for food. Overcoming disparate code-formatting conventions (mostly bracket placement) of each team member.
Accomplishments that were proud of
The entire app.
What We learned
How to hack casually, and still get a cool product out! We really wanted to keep Hackathons fun and collaborative, contrary to the cut-throat competition you sometimes see. After all, it's all about making stuff right?
What's next for Wikidex
Facial Recognition, Language commands, More endpoints!
