Book of Casting

The intention of this repo was originally intended to repeat the IR Raspberry Potter project. It adapted to a simple client/server with sockets, so you don't really NEED to use a raspberry pi. Here's an idea, just mount a tablet into a book and serve up the webpage.

The rest of this readme is just notes for myself.

Setting up Raspberry PI

  1. Install Stretch via typical methods
  2. Use this guide to install openCV:

Wiring it up

Adafruit IR LEDS: part 388 Voltage drop: 1.6V Current Rating: 100mA LEDS: 2

Via = +3.3 -- +{led}- +{led}- --- 1ohm --- GND


Raspberry Potter script sends a POST to http://localhost:3001/api/cast?name=[circle] Via socket io the output is displayed on the screen Backdoor commands to send the same messages via a separate screen

You can’t perform that action at this time.
