Turn-key PCB assembly services in prototype quantities or low-volume to mid-volume production runs

A Raspberry Pie Based Camera

It’s a Raspberry Pie based Point and Shoot Camera, built around a Adafruit PiTFT touchscreen. If you have a WiFi controller for the pie, you can use it to upload the photos and the videos to the cloud like on dropbox which can automatically sync photos to various device such as your phone and the pc. It might not be portable and might also require a little set of wires to operate with, but it’s must make.  The advantage is you can customize what features you want in your camera and develop the kernel accordingly.

Along with the camera and the screen, you also need a pie preferably the Model B version since it’s easier to set up due to availability of Ethernet and two USB ports. An added WiFi adaptor of a GSM shield is and added advantage. A battery pack is also needed if you want to make it completely portable. The display is an Adafruit piTFT display which can be easily interfaced to the pie, the steps of which you can find on the Adafruit website. Overall, a must must try project if you have a Raspberry pie or are willing to learn it, since in a single project it will teach you how to use WiFi, touch screen as well as display along with the camera.
