Envirophat Colour Detector #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

From bigl.es:

One of the projects caught my eye, and it was a project that used the Pi Camera to detect a colour. But why would this be useful? Well dear reader, the project was created as a possible solution to a unique problem. Izzy, who created the project, works at Leeds Museum and there they have lots of fragile fabrics, wallpapers etc in their archives. But the museum would like for the public to see and interact with them.

So how can we make this simpler and cheaper?

The problem: Leeds Museum has fragile fabrics, wallpapers etc that they would like the public to interact with.

Project goal: To create a device that can detect the colour of an item / article of clothing and then suggest and show an item from the museum archives.

Solution: Use a Raspberry Pi and a Pimoroni Envirophat with a little Python code to detect the colour and display it on the screen, along with the R,G,B colour values.
