Guy’s Creepy Facial Recognition Robot with Furby ‘Brain’

Seen here looking like a typical nuclear family of the future, this is YouTuber LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER showing off a facial recognition robot (the one on the right). It appears to be powered by a Furby inside the clear plastic computer case, which is modeled after a classic Apple Macintosh. Fingers crossed it never recognizes my face because I will snub it publicly.

The facial recognition and tracking are actually powered by a Raspberry Pi using a camera in each of the computer’s eyes, the Furby in the back of the computer with the ribbon cables coming out of its eye sockets is just there for decoration and to add an extra creepy factor. You know, as if this project really needed multiple layers of creepiness.

I really feel like this thing belongs in a reboot of Pee-wee’s Playhouse. Or a nightmare. Is there a difference? Depends on who you ask. But if you ask me, the answer will be dictated by an anthropomorphic Magic 8-Ball.
