Magician's Assistant w/ Jacob

People Can Not Be Trusted

Similar projects worth following

To practice prestidig...prestidigtat... illusions, one must take another in to one's confidence...or.

The assistant makes use of an optic to discretion between light and dark then store and reference the variance for a pass-fail search. The mechanical function is operated by an Arduino Uno and communicated by our resident artificial automation Jacob.

Seeing as it was noted in the comments, the card coincidentally at the bottom is NOT the card Jacob chose, if you look closely. I am no hack...see what I did there?!

4 of spades is the card selected by Jacob | 4 of clubs is on the bottom of the deck

    Had some one review the coding I used for the light-dark software and was scoffed at. Apparently I was "lucky" it had worked. I unveiled a secret, it worked 47% of the time and the recording enlisted in the video was in fact 1 of possibly 60 attempts to have all things cooperate, thus the reason I choose not to rerecord with hopes of some other card at the bottom of the deck that is not the near identical card chosen by Jacob. I'd rather eat black licorice with a forced smile.

    That all said, needing the Arduino Uno for another project, the Magician's Assistant is no more. It has ceased to be.

    The extent of the time has been for the storing of each card black and white difference then for the software to recognize the difference between clubs and spades. ..but here's the truth. I despise robots so it took me a while to not blow up my work shop to prevent Jacob from being sentient and possibly raping me while I sleep. HEY YOU DON'T KNOW

Ha, you can see the 4 remains on the bottom. Great work and fun. Joseph

Different 4. Odd coincidence actually. 4 of spades was the chosen card and the bottom card was the 4 of clubs

  Are you sure? yes | no
