Butt-on Activated "Selfie" Booth

Tell us the story of your project.: 

Not much more than the name implies, #ButtActivated #SelfieBooth. DIY IkeaHack re-purposed, up-cycled and #hashtag friendly maker project that instagrams. What you see is what you get. "designed" to be something you look at and go, "oh I could do that" and sometimes followed by "better" :) done.

How-to: 

The RaspBerryPi uses some code to detect the Butt, grab the image from the USB Webcam, format it, log-in to Instagram and upload with a pre-determined caption and hash-tags.
