If like me, you are an early adopter of the Raspberry Pi and have bought the new models as they are released, you probably have a surplus of older Model B’s lying about at home. It would be a crime to let them go to waste, so why not turn them into a self-enclosed Raspberry Pi Night Vision Camera? I recently bought Jason Barnett’s (also known as Boeeerb on Twitter) nifty little Lisiparoi – a light source add-on for the Raspberry Pi Camera Module (including infra-red) – and I wanted to use this as part of a home-made CCTV setup. I also had a couple of Cyntech’s Berry Black cases (for the Model B Pi) at home, and seeing as they are cheap as chips, I decided I would have a go at modding one of my cases to incorporate the Lisiparoi and Camera Module all-in-one.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
