Polargraph Portraits

For the 2016 Interactive Show at NYCR, I collaborated with Kyle McDonald to turn my Polargraph plotter into a portrait sketching robot.

The code is based on github/kylemcdonald/BlindSelfPortrait, plus github/osresearch/polargraph. The Open Frameworks / OpenCV portion attempts to find interesting lines, then generates the line segments for the polargraph code, which generates G-code and sends it to the steppers.

Some highlights from the party were:
