Android Things A.I. Candy Dispenser

A candy dispenser running Android Things that exchanges photos for candies. It uses computer vision to classify the image. The Android Things A.I. Candy Dispenser is a game that asks the user for a specific thing like a bird, dog or cat, and the user should show a photo of that thing in the predefined time to win candies. The device (Raspberry Pi 3B) is running Android Things dev preview. It has a camera connected to take pictures, a 20x4 Serial i2c Display to show the “little” game state, a arcade button to interact with the game and a simple NPN transistor to activate the candy machine DC motor....
