To make the Raspberry Pi touchscreen timelapse controller you will need a model B mini PC and a 10-14 volt battery pack and a few other components. A full list can be found over on the David Hunt website together with full instructions on how to create it.

“Originally I had a laptop connected to the Pi via Wifi, and later on I had a smartphone do the same, but then I got my hands on a PiTFT, a shield that sits neatly on top of the Raspberry Pi.

When I saw it on the Adafruit website, I knew I had to be quick, so 5 minutes later I had one on order, and five minutes after that they were out of stock. Shipping took a while, the order went in before Christmas, and to be fair to Adafruit, the package shipped the next day, but it took over a month to get here from the States. Small packages are usually a lot quicker than that.
