This app provides you with information about how much alcohol you could handle based on certain information from the user such as age, weight, etc. This aims to make people more aware of their limits.
Many university students (especially first-year students) can sometimes go overboard when drinking alcohol and we aim to just make them realise how much should be a sensible amount to consume.
What it does
The user inputs their information such as age, weight, height and the program creates a rough estimate of your “alcohol allowance”, that if you go over you are likely to not be able to handle it. Afterwards, the user can select what drinks they are consuming and also select the amount (in ml), and we show them what percentage of their alcohol allowance they have “used up”.
How we built it
We built it in Java, using eclipse and a tool called window-builder.
Challenges we ran into
The hardest challenge was definitely trying to come up with an estimate that is relatively close to something that would apply to real life. We made a generalised prototype of this app because in order to be more precise with this type of app you would need more information about the person’s health and the drinks they consume. This type of app would be easier to implement with the information provided by smartwatches such as the apple watch that have a good record of your health info.
Accomplishments that we’re proud of
We actually have a program that runs.
What we learned
Do not chug 2 Monster cans in less than an hour.
What’s next for How much is 2 much
Developing the prototype further to be compatible with different platforms, such as phones, smartwatches, etc.
