Incredible camera projects #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
The Pi cameras have come a long way and with them come a plethora of awesome projects. MagPi has this fun roundup of pi powered pic projects. Including one from the Adafruit Learn System
Adafruit’s Philip Burgess offers some great project ideas including this super means of printing out the results of your Raspberry Pi photography on demand, making use of the sort of $45 thermal printer more commonly found at a grocery till. The thermal photo printer works with any standard size Raspberry Pi and the retro photo results are just as good whether taken on a standard Camera Module 2 or the High Quality Camera Module. You’ll need an SD card for the Python code and Raspberry Pi OS, a large push-button, and a means of connecting this and the printer to Raspberry Pi, plus four AA NiMH batteries. A case for the setup could be as simple as a cardboard box or something fancier you design yourself or 3D-print from Thingiverse.
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!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
