Sort your Halloween candy using the Raspberry Pi and Google Cloud Vision

Building on their earlier success with the Google Cloud Vision platform, the good people over at Dexter Industries have come up with a great way of sorting through chocolate bars for Halloween. Using a BrickPi and LEGO pieces, they’ve created an automatic conveyor belt onto which you place your chocolate. The belt drops the individual bars into a basket which triggers the taking of a picture via the Pi camera. Google Cloud Vision is then used to identify the bar and it is then sorted into ‘good’ and ‘bad’. Lovely little project using a mix of technology. Take a look here or at the video below:
