Projekt Idea: Cooking Aid Application



This week our group came up with the wonderful idea of creating a cooking aid application. The main idea behind the application is to have a guide aiding people to cook by providing step by step recipes. An important aspect is that the application can be triggered using voice commands . This feature comes in especially handy when the chef is busy chopping up ingredients or has dirty hands. Chefs can benefit of a hands-free experience!

The Web Speech API converts the voice commands into text so that they can be used in the web client. The JSON server takes care of the data management providing the raw data of the recipies.
