Abyss surprised us all by connecting to our new fancy high-def PTZ IP camera (hostname ‘ptzcam’ on familab LAN – play with it!) to the OpenCV face detection library! He created a twitter bot that updates how many faces it detects in the lab at each run. It tends to see faces in everything, but if it sees any faces at all chances the light is on and somebody is in the lab anyway :p.
He still needs server space on our rack to get it running 24/7, so when it’s up there’ll be another post.
