Live WiFi Webcam Raspberry Pi-in-the-sky #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Live WiFi webcam Raspberry Pi rig PublicLaboratory, via MAKE:

In preparing for the PLOTS LEAFFEST this weekend, Craig Versek of PVOS has just achieved something pretty cool — a live WiFi webcam feed from a battery-powered Raspberry Pi! As long as this little baby is within range of a WiFi signal, any web-enabled device (laptop, smart phone) will be able to navigate to a web page and see what the on-board camera is seeing. Here’s a little schematic of how the things is connected up:

Raspberry Pi inthesky 2.0

998Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Have you tried the new “Adafruit Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro” ? It’s our tweaked distribution for teaching electronics using the Raspberry Pi. But wait, there’s more! Try our new Raspberry Pi WebIDE! The easiest way to learn programming on a Raspberry Pi.

Want a FREE RASPBERRY PI? All orders over $350 get a FREE Raspberry Pi Model B with 512MB RAM!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. I think Adafruit sells comparable parts to build one of these.

    It’s a more open, Maker friendly option to an IP camera.

    It would make a great tutorial.

  2. Thanks for highlighting this project!

    Mike: great suggestions. We should really write up a tutorial on this. Craig said it was actually quite easy to put together — he simply followed two tutorials he found online.

    Another really neat cousin of this project is the Raspberry Pi-based infrared imaging platform that Jeff Warren of Public Lab prototyped recently — check it out! http://publiclaboratory.org/notes/warren/10-17-2012/prototype-raspberry-pi-based-dual-ir-cam

    Merging prototypes like these with an AlaMode shield (http://baldwisdom.com/introducing-raspbery-pi-a-la-mode/ — the equivalent of an Arduino attached to a Raspberry Pi) could lead to some really neat remote aerial imaging / sensing / actuating devices … exciting times!
