Friendly the Robot is a jovial little robot that loves nothing more than sharing the delightful sweetness of Smarties with the world.

Built with Arduino, OpenCV, servomotors, and a whole lot of glue, Friendly is a robot among robots, a turret among a sea of Roombas.

Friendly's target audience is very wide: everyone! Able to track a large variety of faces, Friendly loves giving the gift of candy to anyone he meets!

Friendly is most proud of his main interactive implement - his 30fps Candy-Ray candy shooter, a bolt action, rubber-band-based, sugar-dispensing wonder.

Friendly the Robot is a turret-type robot that uses face detection and significant image processing to recognize human targets in need of candy. After identification, the targets are administered candy via slingshot.
