Green Laser was apart of my masters thesis and an ongoing project I hope to contribute to in my spare time for a long time to come. The idea is that when shopping, consumers generally don’t have a strong indication as to whether the products they purchase are “green” or not. Our approach was to use every existing rating for any barcode-equipped item in existence and to push that data into the form factor of a mobile device empowered with a barcode scanner. The resulting product was “Green Laser,” which, while ambitious in it’s goal, we think enables consumers to quickly and readily decipher rating information by simply scanning an item. We have many future plans for allowing contributions of data to this project and new features to be built on various mobile platforms in the weeks to come.
