The Questionmark API exposes a portion of our food product database. Now and then somebody approaches us who wants to use it for research, build a prototype, or integrate it into their own systems (like Telesuper).

This year, Cell-0 approached us if they could use the Questionmark API for a (non-commercial) prototype. It’s fun to see what others can come up with, and cool to see that a browser can scan barcodes, nowadays, for example with QuaggaJS. Even though performance is not always on par with native apps, this is likely to improve with future developments (like the shape detection API draft).

Read the article Dutch, or check out the prototype.
