The Ben Heck Show Builds A Raspberry Pi Camera

Check out this week’s episode of The Ben Heck Show to see Ben break down a Raspberry Pi and build a slim point and shoot camera:

Felix built a point and shoot camera using spare parts laying around the shop and suggests that Ben shrink it down and put it into a cool enclosure. Ben shares tips and tricks as he works to remove anything unnecessary from the Pi, making it as small as possible. Felix shows how he programmed the Pi to work as a camera in the Tech Time Out. Ben hand wires all the components together until he’s created a super slim Pi point and shoot camera. After he designs and 3D prints a case, it’s time for some selfies!

The project is based on the DIY WiFi Raspberry Pi Camera project and also uses a 2.8″ PiTFT and Powerboost 500.  Ben does a great job showing how to disassemble a Raspberry Pi and make it much slimmer–nice work!

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. Awesome Project! I actually saw Felix’s prototype while at the Heck shop this summer!
