Our aim is to offer an alternative to expensive and inconvenient Smart Fridges. Our product is a cheap kit which can turn any fridge into a smart fridge, and with features most conventional smart fridges don't have such as automated video classification of inventory.
I went to the Amazon Go store this summer and it made me realize how silly entering in things by hand is.
Have you ever forgotten anything at the grocery store? Or better yet, bought items that you already have?
Writing a shopping list can be difficult, and checking to see everything you need is a long tedious process, that still has room for error.
New smart fridges are too much money $$$$
You are paying for too much unnecessary functionality!
There needs to me some in-between
We have a solution. Our simple hardware and service allow you to manage your fridge inventory without ever entering food into a computer. In the age where the govt tracks your face, why can't you keep track of your food?
We built a classifier on a Raspberry Pi (which did not finish installing in time) and our service is architect ed in the AWS cloud using Route 53, Lambda, S3, and DynamoDB.
The Raspberry Pi being so difficult to install python libraries on.
Architecting a hugely scalable service in the cloud
Not to trust Raspberry Pi for quick projects
Scale it up and increase recipe api effectiveness and give smarter recommendations
