Photo Booths are super cool. After selfies, of course, but cool, nonetheless. So this DIY is going to let you make your own photo booth using Raspberry Pi and other components. You can use it at parties to click pictures of the guests and give them a souvenir when they are leaving. Or, for fun sleepovers with friends. Or just because, it is so simple and innovative.
So here’s a list of all the things you’ll need for this DIY:
Raspberry Pi 2
Raspberry Pi Camera
Canon SELPY CP910 or any compact dye-sublimation printer for 4×6″ prints.
So, let’s get started.
You can get the wiring setup, from the source link. The inventor was aware that his printer, would work with CUPS. If you don’t know how to figure it out, then figure it out or use the same model as the one mentioned. The LED, is to signal you to be ‘ready’. For the code again, head over to the link. You could set a default, background image, so that you’re photo, when printed, has a border splash image/watermark/anything you want.
You can modify the code, to give you a collage with a series of pictures, like you can see below.
The photo booth exterior, really depends on you. You can experiment with wood, install flash lights or a slot for the paper to come out from.
I think, it’s super. Go, give it a try. And don’t forget to send us pictures, from your very own Raspberry Pi Photo Booth!
