After the exciting project of Raspberry Pi Camera, we have Raspberry Pi Action Camera. This is like a video camera which is ideal for biking centric activities, and, of course, can be used for stills alike. It also comes integrated with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for file transfers. And that’s not it. It has an on-board charger for its 2000mAh LiPo battery. Yes, it is DIY-able. Read on!
You need, Raspberry Pi A+ model, Raspberry Pi Camera kit, Wi-Fi USB Adaptor, Wireless Bluetooth to Serial Slave, a 3D printer, 32GB Micro SD, 2000mAh LiPo, LiPo Charger/Booster, Momentary Pushbutton Switch, 1/2″,1/4″ 2-56 Machine Screws/Nuts and Rocker Switch. Apart from the usual hot glue and soldering equipment.
Once you have all of these, Connor’s ( the guy who’s designed this) blog will take you right through, till the very end. He has even attached his hand drawn connections for everyone’s sake, along with Code, STLs and video samples.
DIY is all about building, modifying and experimenting on your own. Jazz up your camera and SMILE PLEASE!
