Aura Camera

Arduino powered camera device

My Role: design / software / hardware

Co-Creators: Samantha Downs

A system for creating double-exposure photographs using an Arduino micro-controller and a NeoPixel LED grid. The colors are generated by reading an electrodermal activity measurement taken from the subject's fingers. This biometric reading is interpreted by the software and exposed onto instant polaroid film. My wife and I have toted the aura camera to events across the US and have taken hundreds of aura portraits of subjects.
