A few years ago, I watched this funny Universal Studios photo booth prank (see video).
In my Veillance class at ITP, we learned about surveillance and how we can use different tools to watch others through the internet and routers.
For my Veillance class project, I decided to recreate this prank at the ITP Spring Show 2019. It would be presented as an ITP Memories photo booth, however, it would be a prank. I set up a website with WebRTC and Peer.js and watch people in the photo booth through the webcam of the booth’s screen (iPad). I will be watching through the website inside a different room. I will install speakers inside the booth, and use text-to-speech through the browser to make funny comments on the people inside the booth, and then take their picture capturing their reactions of the voice inside the booth.
