Open Source 360 Camera Project #celebratephotography

NewImage

Awesome ongoing project from Dan Gray on Hackaday.io:

This goal of this project is to develop a hardware kit that is open, hackable, adaptable, and extensible to open this incredible technology to everyone.

The key principles of this project are as follows:

  • Use as much off the shelf components as possible
  • Use simple mechanical mounting that can be assembled without any specialized tools or equipment
  • Compatible with mobile computing platforms such as Raspberry Pi or similar
  • Cost to be similar to a consumer level 360 cameras such as Ricoh Theta ($250-$350)
  • At least still capture capable

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.
