Make A Raspberry Pi Face Recognition Treasure Box #AdafruitWeekendProject #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Create a box that only opens when the right person looks at it with this Raspberry Pi face recognition treasure box tutorial

Face recognition is an exciting field of computer vision with many possible applications to hardware and devices. Using embedded platforms like the Raspberry Pi and open source computer vision libraries like OpenCV, you can now add face recognition to your own maker projects! In this project I’ll show you how to build a treasure box which unlocks itself using face recognition running on a Raspberry Pi.

Before you get started with this project, it will help to familiarize yourself with a few things:
• If you haven’t setup or used a Raspberry Pi, go through the tutorials on learning the Raspberry Pi like preparing an SD card, network setup, and using SSH before attempting this project. Also take a look at the lesson on using a servo for more background on how servos work.
• Skim the OpenCV tutorial on face recognition for an idea of how face recognition algorithms work. Don’t worry, you don’t need to fully understand the math or code to build and learn from this project.
Continue on to learn about the hardware needed to build this project.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
