It’s been a while since I lasted posted about the Prodigialis Robot project, and while I’m not finished with that, I haven’t worked on it for a while. I’m planning on continuing it later on, but for now it’s on the back burner, one of the reasons being that during development I short-circuited one of the servos beyond use and I haven’t yet ordered a replacement.
However, I’ve recently purchased the PiTFT kit from Adafruit, a miniature TFT+Touchscreen kit for the Raspberry Pi as well as a new Camera Module, and a battery pack. Any idea where this is going? I’m working on the DIY WiFi Raspberry Pi Touchscreen Camera project from Adafruit!
I heard about the project when it first came out, during January, and really wanted to do it then, but was a bit squeemish about spending $100 on all the parts for a novelty/hobby project. That is, I was a bit squeemish until I heard about the Raspberry Pi Camera photo contest. You can win $314 if your entry is chosen and there are 14 $30 runners-up, with the one catch that you have to use the Pi Camera Module or a webcam attached to the Pi.
Obviously, this was an awesome reason to purchase the parts, and I’m working on setting up the Portable Pi Camera project right now! I’ll try and remember to take photos as I work, though, as many of you may understand, I can get into the project and then never really take a break, even one to snap a few pictures.
Leave a comment down below with any suggestions for this project, features and what-not, and/or any experiences you’ve had with the Pi camera!
