Someone stealing your candy? Keep it safe from greedy hands with this color recognition lock and dispenser. Using a set of 5 distinct color images, you’ll be able to set up a pattern that will activate and dispense candy. In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the Intel® Edison and a webcam for color recognition. After assembling the electronics and housing, you’ll train the color recognition software using the image cards.

Here is a video of the completed project.
