Build a facial recognition safe with your pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Great new project tutorial up over at Make- check out here!
Protect your valuables from prying eyes without remembering a combination or carrying a key; your face is the key to unlock this safe! This project will show you how to use a Raspberry Pi and Pi camera to build a safe that unlocks itself using face recognition.
The software for this project is based on algorithms provided by the OpenCV computer vision library. The Raspberry Pi is a perfect platform for this project because it has the power to run OpenCV, while being small enough to fit almost anywhere.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
