This is what happens when geeks get married. Back in December, I decided that I wanted to have a photo booth at the reception, so I looked around at rentals and services and was surprised at the cost. I then looked around at DIY photo booths and was slightly disappointed by the state of the art of the DIY photo booth – most seemed to have a big button, and Arduino, a webcam, and a full laptop.
So I designed a simple test circuit with a Canon point and shoot camera (with CHDK installed), an Arduino, and a button. Now, months and hundreds of prototypes later, I have Photoboop! A robo party photographer that turns most cameras into photo booths or time-lapse video machines.
Thanks to the entire PS:One community for help and support while making this project a reality!
Photoboop is live on Kickstarter, Facebook, and it’s own Website.
