The wearable Raspberry Pi mini PC is controlled using a gamepad and features bone conduction earphones for audio together with a 720p display, camera and more.

“There is a button on the audio hat on the back of my head,” Matt reveals. “It is the start/stop button. Start the menu program or kill every program that could be running. The menu program uses the [picamera] API which allows it to be recorded, including the text overlays. The menu program has a few options: camera (from PiGlass V1) at 1080p, record video with audio at 1080 p, stream YouTube at 720p, Emulation Station, Kodi at 720p, and Steam Link [with controller issues].”
“The 720p display looks really good; all the text in menus and captions are easily readable. The camera program allows you to take 1080p images/silent videos, and video with audio records at 1080p, 25 fps, with 44kB audio. YouTube stream will livestream to YouTube in 720p, 25 fps, with 44kB audio.”
