How to Make the Perfect Wearable Tech for a Tourist #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #RaspberryPi #DIY

Raspberry Pi Zero Cap

Even though we now have the convenience of phones, sometimes we just can’t get them out fast enough to get the shot we need while on vacation. That’s why this hat I spotted on Hackaday is the perfect DIY accessory. Maker Mark Williams created a photo snapping, GPS tagging hat using a Raspberry Pi Zero W, a Raspberry Camera V2 and a GPS IMU (think sensors galore). Those extra sensors offer some interesting numbers according to the post.

An additional set of data including yaw, pitch, and roll along with direction is also captured to understand where the camera is pointing when the image was taken. Even if he’s tilting his head at the time the photo was taken, the metadata allows it to be straightened out in software later.

Not only can you get some detailed shots, but if you upload them to a program like GeoSetter, you can actually see the image plotted on a map with all of its matching data. So, if you want to make a hat that will auto snap photos for your next adventure, check out Mark’s tutorial on Ozzmaker for the dets. We’ve got the Raspberry Pi Zero W you’ll need to get started. If you end up making the hat, definitely send us some Pi pics!

Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


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.
