School Pi Club wanted to work on a project that in future could involve the whole school. We often have charity fundraising days in school where we organise different events. We came up with the idea of turning the Raspberry Pi into a PhotoBooth.
With the help of twitter and David Whale (Software engineer/Essex Schools Liaison Officer) aka @Whaleygeek we put together some code to create a Raspberry Pi PhotoBooth.
The photos are taken automatically every few seconds and the students can see their image immediately on screen. The code also contains fun captions which are picked at random.
If you would like to try PhotoBooth for Pi yourself below is a link to the Python code.
If you haven’t already done so you may need to install the Picamera module onto your Raspberry Pi. Instructions on how to do that can be found here http://picamera.readthedocs.org/en/release-0.4/install.html
