Litte Pictureframe is Watching You

I found a cheap digital picture frame at a local electronics store a while ago and searched a project for it. So i installed 60 jpegs with eyes looking in different directions on the pictureframe and started an endless slideshow. Now the picture frame sits on his shelf and is carefully watching whats going on in our livingroom.

little picture frame

To generate the eyes I wrote a short processing sketch that generates a new frame every time a key is pressed and saves it in the sketchfolder.

void setup() {

float d = random(360);

void draw() {
  ellipse(284, 240, 200, 400);
  ellipse(484, 240, 200, 400);

  float da = d;
  float db = d;

  float a = radians( da );
  float b = radians( db );

  ellipse(284 + cos(a) * 60, 240 + sin(a)*160, 80, 80);
  ellipse(484 + cos(b) * 60, 240 + sin(b)*160, 80, 80);

void keyPressed() {
  d = random(360);
} contains the set of imags I use on my pictureframe

    Very clever - just tried this on a little frame for my daughter, she thinks it's fantastic.

    The pictureframe eyes slide would look great on my HTC Android mobile. Thanks for sharing it.
