📸 Paragraphica is a context-to-image camera that combines location data and AI to create unique visual representations of specific places and moments. It exists as both a physical prototype and a virtual camera.
- 🌍 Paragraphica utilizes location data and AI to generate visual representations.
- 📷 It has a real-time viewfinder describing your location and creates scintigraphic representations.
- 🎛️ Three physical dials control data and AI parameters.
- 🌐 The camera collects data from open APIs, including address, weather, time, and nearby places.
- 🖼️ The data is converted into a “photo” using text-to-image AI, capturing the essence of the location.
- 🤖 The resulting photos have a unique and somewhat uncanny perspective.
- 🌟 Inspired by the star-nosed mole’s unique perception, the camera offers a different way of seeing the world.
- 🌐 It provides insight into the perspective of other intelligences through location data and AI.
- 📏 The dials control the camera’s search radius, noise seed, and guidance scale.
- 🖥️ The camera communicates with multiple APIs via a web app built on Noodl.
- 🧰 Hardware includes a Raspberry Pi 4, 15-inch touchscreen, 3D printed housing, and custom electronics.
