This is by far the tastiest project we’ve ever done! In this project we show you how to build a Gingerbread robot using the Raspberry Pi and servos kit, and the PivotPi, the Raspberry Pi Servo Controller. The Gingerbread robot is equipped with a camera that checks for faces, and if it sees a face, it does a small dance!
We naturally had to take this a little further, and added facial recognition to the mix: the robot can detect a face using OpenCV computer vision software and the Raspberry Pi Camera.
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!
