GameSnap

DESCRIPTION

This Android application was made as part of my Information Technology undergraduate capstone project. To create this application, I recorded hundreds of hours of gameplay footage and stored frame by frame stills into a dataset of images. When a picture was taken of a video game, an algorithm would search through the dataset and look for reocurring color themes and iconography to return a result. Each series of images were associated with a self-created walkthrough which would then pop up within the application to provide instant and accurate assistance with the game.

The API that this application was built upon has since been discontinued.
