Adding to the ever-growing list of amazing projects you can create with the awesome Raspberry Pi Zero mini PC. Which is available to purchase priced at just $5 from online electronic stores.
Is this fantastic wearable Raspberry Pi Zero camera project which has been created with a little 3D printing and a few extra components to provide power.
The small wearable Pi Zero camera is also fitted with an external lens to provide a wider-angle view and the camera is also capable of capturing time-lapse photography, allowing you to log your daily activity automatically as you go about your business.
The Adafruit blog explains more about the project which is available via their website as a tutorial with all the 3D printing files available to create the case required.
This project uses the Raspberry Pi Zero and Pi camera module v2 to make a nifty little camera, ideal for capturing time lapse photography. Packed into a simple 3D printed case, we’ve fitted a PowerBoost 500C and 500mAh lipo battery. With some extra add-ons, it can be worn on a lanyard or clipped to a pocket or pack.
A custom shell script uses the raspistill function to snap a photo every few seconds. Slide the SD card into your computer to review the day’s activities or merge all the images into a time lapse animation. This is a great build to remix because there’s lots of possible configurations. Check out the full tutorial for more info. The design files for the 3D printed case are up on thingivse.
