Raspberry Pi Magic Mirror #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Check out this fascinating Raspberry Pi Magic Mirror project created by Pierre Raufest at “Think RP”i — and this lovely story from Liz at RaspberryPi.Org of Pierre documenting his project:

Here’s a somewhat creepy mirror with a disembodied (French) voice, which recognises the person looking into it and responds accordingly. This lovely hack from Pierre Raufast is the sort of OpenCV application that we hope to see much more of when the camera board goes up for sale (and the Pi camera would be a great solution here, with a much higher framerate).

Snow White’s Mum has nothing on Pierre.

I mailed Pierre, the man in front of the mirror, as soon as I spotted this on YouTube last week, asking if he had any documentation. He didn’t, but he sat down immediately and spent the weekend putting some together – in English. Thank you very much, Pierre! Head over to at Think RPi, where you’ll find easy-to-follow steps which make up a tutorial, including a hardware list; software; instructions; tips on successfully using OpenCV (the face-recognition software); a picture of Han Solo, my all-time favourite space pirate; and a picture of a couple of Brits holding boxes full of tiny computers last April.
