Raspberry Pi Glass: Wearable Computer by DomesticHacks #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Raspberry Pi Glass: Wearable Computer by DomesticHacks, Thingiverse Thing 127800.
(NOTE: Video above is in German, but is handy to scroll through even if you don’t speak German.)
This is a project I build for the first Maker Faire in Germany (in Hannover):
Most of the project is printable with a 3D printer, I used gold colored PLA to get a retro futuristic look.
In addition to the printable parts you will need:
A Raspberry Pi 😉
1.8 ST7735R TFT LCD Module The
kernel module for this display 2 small plastic or glass lenses
Bluetooth keyboard Bluetooth dongle: http://www.ebay.de/itm/290762845726
Powerbank ~40 brass screws M3x20 (some has to be shortened)
1 brass screw M3x30
2 brass screws M4x20
~50 brass nuts M3
4 brass nuts M4
2 self tapping screws (must fit through the holes of the Raspberry Pi)
Artificial or real leather
A cheap wristwatch
Acrylic glass (fluorescent for a nicer look)
2 5mm UV LEDs and two matching resistors
A small switch
You will also need some small parts like rivets, cables, USB plugs etc.
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.
