A new DIY Raspberry Pi camera has been created called the Le Myope, which provides a very unexpected result when snapping an image. Rather than processing the image that is captured for viewing, the unique Raspberry Pi camera will show a similar image of the subject you have just taken.
Check out the video below to learn more about this very unique Raspberry Pi camera and see it in action, which has been created by Salade Tomate Oignon based in Paris.
Even more imprecise than a blurry polaroid picture, or than a filter-abused instagram shot. Using the most advanced algorithms based on machine learning and computer vision, here is ‘Le myope’, a short-sighted camera.
The new iteration of the layercam ‘Why are you taking this picture? It’s already on the Internet!’ is a Raspberry Pi based camera, that takes a picture and returns a similar one from Google similar image search.
Use it in a popular place and chances are that you will get the same picture taken by someone else. (That happened with the mural during one of the tests). Use it in a remote place and get random roughly similar pictures from all over the internet!
• Raspberry Pi (rpi 2)
• a couple of wires
• good ol’ Raspberry Pi camera module
• 10 ohms resistor
• push button
• Belkin N150 micro Wireless USB adapter
• battery to power the Pi (a Duracell Instant USB Charger in my case)
• screen (4.3 Inch LCD TFT Rearview Monitor screen)
• rechargeable 9V battery to power the screen up, because I wasn’t able to hook the screen up on the pi 5v alim
