Build a human firewall with Raspberry Pi

If you're getting tired of answering the front door - only to find unwanted visitors such as energy salespeople, then this project by Leonardo Sarra, Mattia Nicolella, and Andrea Fioraldi will be of great interest.

The system uses a Raspberry Pi setup with a camera, and various software tools to allow you to train the system to identify people you do want to see - so unwanted visitors can be rejected. 

They've put together a quick demonstration in the following video:
