Using Python & OpenCV to Analyze Airborne Particles on a Slide Microscope | #citizenscience via @PublicLab

Very cool initiative from Public Lab using OpenCV (open-source computer vision software) to analyze images taken from a slide microscope:

Following the Jan 9th air quality open call I wanted to see what can be done with a microscope slide image of airborne particles. Inspired by the work started by Mathew and Stevie a couple of years ago I set out to try and get a similar process running on Python using openCV and skimage. Based on an old tutorial to detect coins I repurposed it for a single slide example. Once more example images are obtained this process could be made more robust, could also be a great candidate for DL!

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.
