This photo booth has a vintage look with modern-day technology.

The first known working photographic machine was a product of the French inventor T. E. Enjalbert back in March 1889. While the vast majority of today’s photo booths are digital, traditional ones typically consisted of a seat or bench surrounded by a curtain of some sort. Inspired by those of yesteryear, a Maker by the name of “kitesurfer1404” has devised a slick, Wi-Fi-enabled selfie booth.


In order to bring this idea to life, the Maker used an Atmel basedArduino to monitor the state of the buttons and handle the LED lighting, along with a seven segment display and a DSLR camera. Beyond that, he implemented a Raspberry Pi to control the countdown, scaling, filter effects and processing, which can take up to 20 seconds per image. The Pi runs in Wi-Fi Access Point mode, enabling anyone with a wireless-compatible device to connect to the photo booth and view the images…
