PolaPi: The instant printing point and shoot camera! #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

PolaPi! Check out more info here and here.

Here another project finally finished ! The Bluetooth thermal printer was fun. Unfortunately I didn’t get it work with apple i-stuff. A stand alone camera, as the Polaroid is in fact even more fun !

I used brass angle rods, glass fiber plates and screws for the case. As usual, a raspberry pi, this time with its own camera module. a TFT screen, the thermal printer, and a lipo battery. More details here:

During a party, the 3.6Ah lipo was able to keep running the raspberry pi for around 6h, plus around 100 prints!

I found a large aperture lens to get maximum sensibility. The counter part is it need to be manually focused.
