Live WiFi Webcam Raspberry Pi-in-the-sky #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Live WiFi webcam Raspberry Pi rig PublicLaboratory, via MAKE:

In preparing for the PLOTS LEAFFEST this weekend, Craig Versek of PVOS has just achieved something pretty cool — a live WiFi webcam feed from a battery-powered Raspberry Pi! As long as this little baby is within range of a WiFi signal, any web-enabled device (laptop, smart phone) will be able to navigate to a web page and see what the on-board camera is seeing. Here’s a little schematic of how the things is connected up:

  1. I think Adafruit sells comparable parts to build one of these.

    It’s a more open, Maker friendly option to an IP camera.

    It would make a great tutorial.

  2. Thanks for highlighting this project!

    Mike: great suggestions. We should really write up a tutorial on this. Craig said it was actually quite easy to put together — he simply followed two tutorials he found online.

    Another really neat cousin of this project is the Raspberry Pi-based infrared imaging platform that Jeff Warren of Public Lab prototyped recently — check it out! http://publiclaboratory.org/notes/warren/10-17-2012/prototype-raspberry-pi-based-dual-ir-cam

    Merging prototypes like these with an AlaMode shield (http://baldwisdom.com/introducing-raspbery-pi-a-la-mode/ — the equivalent of an Arduino attached to a Raspberry Pi) could lead to some really neat remote aerial imaging / sensing / actuating devices … exciting times!
