iPhone App Concept Scans Food Tags To Provide Product Information [Video]

iPhone App Concept Scans Food Tags To Provide Product Information [Video]

Taggie is designed to educate children about where supermarket foods come from and how they are grown.

Emma Hutchings

Dutch design student Niels van Hoof‘s graduation project at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, was a smartphone app that enables children to find out where supermarket food comes from. Taggie, a concept iPhone app, applies the principle of origin awareness to fruit and vegetables.

You aim the device’s camera at a product tag to scan it, and a 3D augmented reality animation explains where the food comes from, how it is grown and its different varieties. Taggie is designed to give children more information about fruit and vegetables in an entertaining way, which will hopefully inspire them to eat healthy foods. Take a look at the app in action in the video below:
