Anyone who owns a Raspberry Pi mini computer, and would like to build their own version of Google’s Project Glass, might be interested in the wearable computer which has been created by Instructables contributor meztek.
Meztek has taken a Raspberry Pi mini computer running Raspbian Linux, together with a pair of display glasses in the form of the Vuzix Wrap 920, together with a custom-built battery pack running on 2 x AA batteries.
The wearable computer was created as an entry into the Raspberry Pi Speed Challenge, and Raspberry Pi says that they were “really impressed by the quality of the projects that came in, and we had so many standout entries that we decided to hand out an extra second place prize!”. Which was awarded to the wearable computer.
