Since my son was born, I've been doing a lot of laundry. An infant's laundry needs are small (well the clothes are) but frequent so to be efficient you might as well do the whole family's the laundry. When you do enough laundry, you'll notice those little tags. Each garment has a set of shapes - triangles, circles, squares, and other shapes - that intend to describe how to care for it.
Well last year, I got obsessed and started to learn how to interpret each one. It's not complicated but it is not obvious either. So I set out to make it easier on myself and others. It's easy enough to create a pocket guide for laundry tags. But, I thought it would be neat to be able to take a picture of the care tag and present which tag it matched. This seemed like an opportunity to play around with machine learning and computer vision tools as well.
I'm really proud with how it came out. I released both apps under the LaundrySnap name in the respective app stores back in May but I just launched it on Product Hunt Today!
