Raspberry Pi enthusiasts may be interested to know that the StereoPi v2 project currently running on the Crowd Supply website has raised 74% of its required pledge goals thanks to over 150 backers with still 17 days remaining. The open-source stereoscopic camera based on Raspberry Pi with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and an advanced powering system is available from $45 as the StereoPi v2 Slim, which is perfect for “DIY ninjas” or those wanting to embed StereoPi in a tight space, say its creators. This board is the same as the standard edition, but without all the bulky connectors – the Ethernet RJ45 jack, GPIO header, and dual USB Type-A connector have not been populated. To use this board, you will need your own Raspberry Pi Compute Module, cameras, and camera ribbon cables.
StereoPi opens up countless possibilities in robotics, AR/VR, computer vision, drone instrumention, panoramic video, and more. StereoPi is a carrier board for a Raspberry Pi Compute Module and is compatible with all compute module variants: CM1, CM3 (normal and Lite), and CM3+ (normal and Lite).
