I am building a magic mirror for my high school English classroom. I started thinking about facial recognition for differentiating upcoming assignments for different class periods, but since I have 6 classes with 40 students, I decided I have neither the time or patience for that.
However, I’m wondering if it would be possible to use the face recognition to take roll? Each of my students walk up to the mirror, and the screen gives them a notification when it has marked them as present. Is this a crazy dream?
I currently use a QR system and have students scan their QR “ID badge” on my ipad, but I’d LOVE if they could just walk up to the mirror. I suppose an alternative solution would be a QR reader module that takes attendance. Kids still have to have the QR code, but scanning in on mirror may be easier than my ancient gen 2 ipad.
Anywho, appreciate any input/ideas. Thanks!
