OpenCV Python example

This is a set of scripts that calibrates and calculates a depth map from a stereo camera. It is primarily written with this ELP stereo camera in mind, but it theoretically should work with other hardware.

See for a full writeup.

How to migrate, not nuke, your Reddit content

I edited my Reddit comments using a version of Power Delete Suite that I modified to do the following:

  • Include a patch by james2432 on GitHub to add a 5 second delay between every write to avoid running into Reddit's (pre-7/1/23) API limits.
  • Backup comments and self-post text as base64 instead of raw text so that the formatting can be restored.
  • Include the URI-encoded permalink in the edited comment to allow deep links to the comment itself in the mirror. To use this, enable the "Edit comments / self posts" option and put %encoded_permalink% somewhere in your text.

My fork is available here. If you want to do this too, make sure to run this scrip

animatronic_mouth.py
This script animates a motorized mouth on a Raspberry Pi GPIO pin so that it
appears to be speaking alongside the audio on the specified PulseAudio source
(which usually should be a sink's monitor).
Find PA_SOURCE with `pactl list` and look for a monitor device that corresponds

# This camera enumerates as two separate cameras, hence the separate `left` and
