This project is a hacked together object recognition program built from various out of date tutorials and a lot of forum questions/answers. It uses Python and OpenCV.

Currently our solution for recognizing images is to use a Google Drive folder to grab the images. Then the Python script runs to see if the object is recognized. Then the Google Drive emails the result back to the user.

Some of the resources we used:

Our Google Drive folders (may need an invitation to view/edit):



Next Steps:
Create an Android app that uses the Google API to access the Google Drive with MIT App Inventor.

Bryan came up with the idea and did the majority of the coding and debugging.
Dallas did a lot of debugging and some fixing and set up this repo.
Emily came up with a fun application for this software and took most of the pictures and Photoshopped them to remove the backgrounds.
She also wrote up the scavenger hunt clues.
