Blade-runner-inspired VK-Pocket camera #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Fun Blade Runner project, could make a good Halloween accessory. Replicate the Voight-Kampff Test to test for replicants. Shared in MagPi:
“In the movie, there’s a camera on a stalk which is aimed at the subject’s eyeball, and a monitor showing that eye isolated and magnified. My concept was to have a high-resolution, wide-angle camera, and use the face tracking code to crop and zoom in to any eye it detected. Anyone approaching the machine to look at it would be stared back at by their own eye.”
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.
