Good read until I got to the spot about $1200 Google vision and nothing to solve this issue.

I was expecting a portion to be like, "But we can do better!" and then go into using serverless with opencv to reduce the cost.

This is still a good read as it sparks ideas for others. Yes it's expensive but the author went well above typical blog posts and shared the financial costs.

It's nothing more than a proof of concept and obviously it could be improved to drive the cost down but what exactly do you expect by someone who took their time to write this and share it with the rest of the community?

Everyone is a critic...
