For Manchester Makerfest 2015 Bob and I built a Tweeting Photo booth, for use with the bug workshop, the main part is a Raspberry Pi. This is a project I have been thinking about doing for a while.
- Raspberry Pi
- Raspberry Pi Camera
- An Enclosure
- WiFi Card
- A Giant Button!
- A Build-A-BUG! bug
- You will want to set up the Raspberry Pi as standard, and get WiFi working (Our wifi fell over and caused the software to be buggy, perhaps a fixed Ethernet cable is better).
- Get the Pi to auto log into the GUI (I know this is almost unheard of for me!).
Get the code you need:
sudo apt-get update &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install graphicsmagick -y sudo apt-get install python-pip&amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/ol&amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; sudo apt-get install python-picamera git clone https://github.com/PhilipMcGaw/photobooth.git ~/photobooth
You will want photobooth.py to run automagically on boot, so we need to change a few things in the `.xsession` config file:
to get the Button to take photos, and for the bug eyes to flash we will need to interface to the GPIO pins on the Pi.
