Raspberry Pi Photo Booth #celebratephotography
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/01/21/raspberry-pi-photo-booth-celebratephotography/

Fun project from kevino and Sonia Wong on hackster.io:

We love clowning around in a digital photo booth at parties, then sharing the photos online. But who wants to risk a laptop getting doused with margaritas or champagne?

Cheap single-board computers make it easy to roll your own standalone photo booth that can connect to the Internet with no help from your precious PC. Here’s a simple project that’s based on the Raspberry Pi and Pi Camera Module. It’s touchscreen-controlled by partygoers, and it automatically emails your photos (if you wish) and uploads them to Google Photos where anyone with the password can see and share. All the software is open source.

The Design Evolution of Beer Can Openings
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/01/21/the-design-evolution-of-beer-can-openings/

This particular design evolution came to us Via Core77

The greatest technological challenge of the 20th Century was not the moon landing; it was how to get fresh, delicious beer from a brewery into a customer’s belly. Prior to the 1930s if you wanted beer, you and a guy named Amos rolled a barrel from the brewery back to your village, tapped it, and distributed it into jugs. (One benefit of this method was that in a financial pinch, the barrel could be worn in lieu of clothing, but it was otherwise inconvenient.)

I like the British method, where a dreyer delivers the barrels to a local, where you go to have a "swift half."

Facial Recognition Door with Raspberry Pi and Windows IoT #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/01/20/facial-recognition-door-with-raspberry-pi-and-windows-iot-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

via Raspberry Pi Pod

Masato Sudo, a software engineer in the Microsoft Windows IoT team has developed a system which recognises a person approaching a door and then unlocks (or doesn’t) accordingly.

A standard USB camera captures the image, the Pi takes the image in and, using the Microsoft Cognitive Services API, identifies the person.

“It’s a prototype that identifies the visitor.” If the door recognises the visitor, it will greet them by name, and the door will be unlocked and opened.

If they aren’t identified, the door remains firmly locked. The opening of the door is controlled by a GPIO pin that sends a signal to a relay. The code is C# and was written using Visual Studio.

Amazon Dash Button Hack – Silent Doorbell #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/01/20/amazon-dash-button-hack-silent-doorbell-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

via RaspiHub

Constantly looking out the window so that you can intercept visitors before they ring the doorbell? Tired of the dogs and baby going crazy anytime it rings? Don’t want to spend a fortune on a “smart” solution?

Making a silent doorbell is as easy as hacking a $5 Amazon Dash Button! The only other thing you need is a computer that’s always at home – like, say, that Raspberry Pi you’ve got sitting around. Get text notifications anytime someone pushes your new door bell and keep the whole house happy. (It’s even cooler to get notifications if you have a smartwatch!)

Twitter Vending Machine #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/01/20/twitter-vending-machine-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

Cool project from Luis Guajardo Diaz – aka theguaz on vimeo:

_I wrote a node.js app connected to twitter that watched for tweets containing a determined hashtag, once a tweet was sent with the # the system returned a unique token on a url using a DirectMessage sent automatically from the brand account but using my node app….
Used on a private event from the brand, the node.js app ran a whole day on a raspberry PI on my shop_
