Check out this open ended RPi powered photobooth via tinkurlab.com:
While I still love the Four Frames Photobooth, it takes a bit of time to transport, set up, and take down. Although Four Frames Photobooth has had a busy life – attending multiple weddings, a few business parties, and even a happy hour – I wanted something the would be, well, easier, quicker, and a ‘lil bit more playful. Meet TinkurBooth – a platform for taking quick and candid photos with endless possibilities for innovation.
TinkurBooth was my first project using a Rasberry Pi. Many of TinkurLab’s creations have already used microcontrollers such as the Arduino. However, I’ve been looking for an excuse to try a Raspberry Pi. Not only are Pis cheap ($30-40) the Pi Camera module is also cheap ($30) and you can use a cheap ($10) wi-fi adapter for connectivity – < $100 for a photobooth is a pretty good deal. And honestly, there’s just something geekily awesome about taking pictures using shell commands and switches!
I wanted TinkurBooth to be more then a “once and done” photobooth. I wanted it to be a platform for experimentation and play – for trying new ideas. Coming from my day job as an agile leader and coach, I am often reminded about the countless opportunities for experimentation – to try new things, test a hypothesis, and validate the outcome. The TinkurBooth experience is built around four steps, which allow for many possibilities: Trigger + Interaction + Capture + Sharing.
