Twitch Stream Notes - May 28, 2019

What we did

Show and Tell (15 minutes)

Emotion Mesh! Edge ML & IoT Project (2 hours, 45 minutes)


  • Talk about what we did last time (Configure UART between Coral and Argon, mostly)
  • Review what I did last week off-stream

    1. Wired up arcade buttons and LEDs
    2. Added a state machine to controller firmware
    3. Button presses on box mapped to actions on the Coral
    4. Trained and tuned a local emotion detection model for the Coral

This time

  • Solder and assemble the controller board on an Adafruit Perma-proto board
  • Mount everything into the button box (incl. standoffs)
  • Wire up the emotion detection prediction script to the capture/demo flow

Stretch (probably next time)

  • Start working on UI for hiding the streaming display and showing the modified images on the main screen
  • Figure out how I am going to capture stats for captures

What we learned

  • Brandon needs to make sure he has the right hardware before a stream next time! 🤦‍♂️
