My friends were complaining that wedding photobooths were too expensive to rent. Could we make one for them?
Glen and I from the Porkbuns Initiative stepped up in full armor, ready to help.
What is it? It’s a self-running photobooth that uses your Mac for brains and DSLR for eyes and a Webkit browser for its clothes and a photo printer for… a printer. You can connect an iPad as the frontend for a nice visual touch (pun intended).
We built it on a backend Rails instance, pushing SVG+HTML5 in the frontend and using the gphoto4ruby gem as a camera library wrapper.
