An arduino based Instagram style photo booth

Check out this awesome project from Instructables user alexandermorris, he made a larger than life, Instagram camera that uses LED-segment displays alongside a Nikon d3200 camera to create an awesome photo booth for a party.

The camera is controlled via the Big Dome Push Button, with the LED 7-segment display being used to show how long till the next snapshot. There’s an LCD screen embedded in the project that displays your shot afterwards too!

The project looks awesome, taking a look at it though, it might be a perfect opportunity to utilise a Pi 3 and Camera Board with some IFTTT coding to instantly post pictures from your next event! The project has no real affiliation with Instagram, and it’s not for sale at all. So if you’re wanting one it looks like you’ll be making it yourself!
