I’ve started developing a new app for learning Thai language. A very early Beta version is available for testing here.
I created this app mainly as a tech demo of Augmented Reality and somewhat for my own benefit when going out drinking.
I wanted to see how many calories and how much alcohol was in what I’m drinking. But barcode scanner apps often don’t work in a dimly lit pub, when you don’t have an internet connection, or when the barcode label is a bit wrinkled. So I created Beer Goggles.
I’ve only included a handful of beer types so far – I’ll probably just open source the project soon. Go and test the app and let me know if you’re interested in contributing to its development – I built it in Unity, using the Vuforia AR libraries.
