Raspberry Pi photo booth using a thermal printer

Frederick Vandenbosch decided he wanted to make a photo booth. So, he took a thermal printer and connected it up to a Raspberry Pi. Then he added the 7″ Raspberry Pi touch screen as a control interface and built a wooden surround for everything. It’s a very neat set-up and he’s written it all up as a tutorial with included code. The prints of the photographs are, of course, black and white and low-res, but it’s a great thing to do if you have the equipment. You can achieve the same result using the Pipsta printer. Take a look at Frederick’s blog post here.

      You’re very welcome 🙂 Just need to get my hands on a thermal printer like yours to do the same kind of thing – I really like it as an idea, even though the prints fade after a while it’s pretty cool 🙂
