If you are interested in building your very own Raspberry Pi camera project to take selfies, you may be interested in the SelfieBot which was originally constructed for the Adafruit booth at the Seattle Mini Maker Faire 2017. Kindly its creators have now published details of how to create your very own via the Adafruit website. Check out the video below to learn more about the features that allow the SelfieBot two giggle, snooze and print selfies using its integrated thermal printer.
“This is a big build, and definitely a multi-day project with a lot of parts and several fabrication techniques. It’s a fun mix of electronics and fabrication, and there are lots of opportunities to customise this project along the way! Although the case is laser cut and 3D printed, you may still need to drill/cut into parts of it along the way, so be prepared to use a drill, small hand saw, and file. If you’re not comfortable with these tools, have a friend or parent show you how to use them safely. This project uses lasercutting and 3D printing to build the case. You can check with your local makerspace for access to these tools, or send the files out to a service.”
