Project Description

Introduction

In modern Web Browsers, JavaScript provides exposes some amazingly powerful features. One of these is the webkitGetUserMedia function, which allows you to access a computer’s WebCam (with permission!).

In this example, we’ll use the Espruino board to serve up a webpage which accesses the WebCam and then sends a low-resolution image back to the Espruino board, which can then display it on an LED matrix.

You’ll Need

  • An RGB123 matrix – I’ve used a 16×16
  • A WIZnet W5500 module
  • A Laptop/Tablet with a Webcam
