Look into the Zombie Mirror, wait for it to find your face, and … POOF! … a deep neural network turns you into a Zombie. It’s a lot of fun at parties.
Behind the scenes, Zombie Mirror consists of a monitor or TV connected to a Raspberry Pi that looks for your face and sends it up to DeepGrave.me (created specially for this project) which uses a type of deep neural network called a CycleGAN to zombify your face. The neural network was trained on 20,000 selfie images of “normal” people and 400 images of various zombie faces mined from the internet. The underlying network is a slightly modified version of this trained on a single NVIDIA GTX 2080 ti.
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!
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.
