Raspberry Pi Unlocks Computer by Detecting Push-Ups with ML

If you’re tired of typing in a password to log into your computer and you don’t use a fingerprint reader or an IR camera, you can at least get a workout in. Maker Victor Sonck has created a Raspberry Pi-powered push-up authentication project so that you break a sweat when you log in. Instead of logging in with something typical like a string of characters, Sonck logs in with a string of reps using a little help from machine learning (ML) on our favorite single-board computer.

Sonck shared the creation process behind this project through his ML Maker channel on YouTube which at the moment only features this project. However, a quick look at his recent GitHub activity shows a history of ML-based projects leading up to this Pi-powered, exercise-inducing creation.
