    "ShopSavvy" uses the G1 camera to scan UPC barcodes and then searches on them.

    Many weightloss websites have databases of foods that one can input to track calorie and nutrition intake. I'm one of the "ones". :)

    Very often, what I've eaten is not in the database and I end up having to manually input all of the calorie and nutrition information. This is a pain in the butt, so I usually end up failing to track my calorie/nutrition intake.

    It would be great if someone would write a program that would use the G1's camera to scan UPC barcodes on products I/we eat and then use that barcode to look up the calorie/nutrition data (perhaps on the product manufacturer's website) and then post the resulting "tracking" information into the diet websites or maybe even a standalone program on the G1.

    What do you think? Can it be done? (I don't know the Android programming language, so I'm asking you gurus.)
