Barbara is a Talking AI Camera #celebratephotography
Barbara is also my Gram who happens to be my hero (she is also 90, an avid gardener and purveyor of snacktreats) so, this project has a lot to live up to ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Considering this is an 8bitsandabyte project, we’re sure it’s great! From Hackster.io:
AI being the latest buzzword, this project is all about the slightly useless. After finding a neat API that captions images and an old camera, the goals is set: A camera that captions what it sees!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
