[P] I built Dab and T-Pose Controlled Lights with OpenPose and Keras

In the words of my 9 year old niece, the dab is “well.. considered old fashioned.”

So, here’s a completely ridiculous project, lights controlled by old fashioned dance moves.

To build training data I reused the OpenPose Python example, adding a keypress to build an array of sample data for either category of dab, tpose, or other.

Once I got that data, I went through it interactively in a Jupyter Notebook, where I cleaned it up and then trained a network on 171 sample poses.

With that trained network, I then used it along with a Z-Wave Z Stick on my NVIDIA Jetson, and controlled the lights on my network with this program I wrote glueing everything together.

All the code is on Github.

If you’re interested, I also wrote a blog post with more visuals.
