Chapter 8. Playing Rock, Paper, or Scissors with Raspberry Pi Zero

You've now built several projects with Raspberry Pi Zero. Now, you'll take some of these capabilities and add it to a new project, such as the ability to see and determine what is going on around you using a USB webcam and an open source library called OpenCV. In this project, you'll control a robotic hand to play the classic decision-making game; rock, paper, or scissors.

In this chapter, you will build a basic robotic hand and then use it to play rock, paper, or scissors. In this chapter, you will learn:
