Dries Depoorter’s Raspberry Pi Surveillance Art Jaywalking #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi


Art with a statement – and Raspberry Pi! From Wired via Raspberry Pi Pod:

The webcam’s public feed, like thousands of others like it, is accessible to anyone who can find its URL with a Google search. At an art gallery thousands of miles away, a tiny Raspberry Pi computer is streaming the video to a monitor while it analyzes the footage with a simple computer vision algorithm. It instantly snitches, flashing, “WOULD YOU LIKE TO REPORT THE JAYWALKER?” on the screen. If you’re a visitor at this gallery, you’ll face a choice: hit a red button in front of the computer, and it will send a screenshot of the incident in an email to the nearest police precinct, potentially costing her a $42 fine. Or you can let the oblivious lawbreaker go on her way.
