Let’s face it: if you’ll be able to’t consider a fire-breathing billionaire industrialist to give protection to your stuff, who are you able to consider? (Video, embedded under.)

This one is directly out of the Truly Unhealthy Concepts recordsdata, and involves us from [Marc Radinovic]. His tale in this one is that he needs to give protection to the stuff in his new area, and felt {that a} face-recognition machine with a flame thrower could be one of the simplest ways to handle that. And to by some means make it even higher, mentioned machine could be constructed into a daft portrait of everybody’s favourite plutocrat. The center of the machine are just about what you’d be expecting — a digital camera and a Raspberry Pi working OpenCV and a face popularity library, a butane reservoir and a solenoid valve, an arc lighter as an ignition supply, and an Arduino and a few utterly no longer sketchy in any respect wiring to keep watch over all items. And LCD shows for [Elon]’s eyes, after all.

The machine is skilled to acknowledge [Marc]’s face and greets him cheerfully when he’s in view. [Non-Marc] folks, then again, are handled a little much less accommodatingly, as much as and together with a face-melting fireball. Effigies of different billionaires were given the remedy; surprisingly, [Marc]’s face-recognition set of rules didn’t even acknowledge any other [Mark] as a human face, which while you take into consideration it’s beautiful darn humorous.

So, under no circumstances a sensible safety machine, and unquestionably no longer one thing you will have to construct, but it surely’s beautiful just right amusing anyway. It reminds us a little of the fire-breathing duck we noticed years in the past.

Because of [JK] for the end.
