I modified the color tracking code to display a small pigeon on my fingertip. It works by tracking the color of my nail polish.
I tried to make a Japanese photobooth. They’re a lot of fun to take pictures with friends, but really expensive, so I wanted to recreate some of the fun/ridiculous on my computer.
Ideally pressing the return button would make the camera take a series of 4 videos in relatively rapid succession. After, the user would be able to draw on it and add ‘stamps’ to personalize the photos, for example, the date the photo was taken, a phrase to describe the relationship of the people in the photo, cat ears, hearts, and a brush to draw whatever they want. The user would decide where they would want to place the stamps by clicking the position.
When I set about trying to create the photobooth, I had some difficulty with my camera, it wouldn’t resize to a smaller image when I drew the captured image on the canvas. I decided I’d deal with that issue later.
I also wasn’t sure how to create a timer that would take pictures in succession, so I decided to go for one image for now. The cat ears and heart were drawn in Illustrator and the date and phrase were created in p5. I was only able to get the images to be placed with a mouse click, but ran into an issue where with the first click, both images would appear.
Trying to combine these two components of the photo booth gave me a lot of trouble. They worked fine separately, but would disappear when placed together.
I just made a fun photo booth where you can take pictures in red, green, blue, black & white, distorted colors, or normal mode. Then you can also make the little pictures be in video mode so they take the live feed instead of an image. I added a clicking noise to when the picture is taken.

I found a potato cutout and a mashed potato cutout and wanted to use them to play with image manipulation and sound files. The basic principle I wanted to work with was that each time I clicked the potato would become less and less opaque until it was gone and replaced with a plate of mashed potatoes! Accompanying this transition would be a sound.
Here’s what I made
My only real issue was not being able to get the sound to stop once it started playing…
I had some trouble getting it to load properly and I wanted to start it still and then click to start the gif but I couldn’t figure it out.
