I just wanted to let everyone know that this is something that i am working on, i had planned on making a screen capture video but vlc was tweaking out on me. The title explains it all, im making a system that will log the inventory of the food in your house, and it will generate grocery lists from the stuff that you throw away. All this is done using barcodes and barcode scanners.
Right now those are the only 2 features it has but i plan on adding more such as:
-one scan to add whole grocery list back to inventory
-add recipe system
-make it easier to scan items into inventory that have been entered before
-print without dialogue box
i also have 2 long term goals:
-ability to scan with webcam
-available recipe system that compares ingredients needed to your inventory and shows what recipe you can make with what you have
I have included a screenshot, since i could not provide a video, so you can at lease see how the navigation page looks. To navigate the system from the index page you can click on the links, or scan the barcodes on the screen, but you can only scan on screen barcodes if you have a CCD scanner not a laser scanner. I dont have CCD scanners so i just printed out that page and scan off the page. I wanted to reduce the need for a mouse as much as possible.
I posted this because i just wanted some feedback to see if anyone else would use this besides me. Also any questions/comments are welcome too
