Develop your own mini-camera

Does your project need a wifi enabled HD mini camera?  With this free and open source hardware available from Lamobo, it is now easy to create your own camera.

The Lamobo D1 is the smallest open-source development board, with a built-in HD mini camera. On first glance it looks like it just a pin hole camera, but this has the brains to control your project, plus provide decent connectivity. The wifi can either connect to your network, or can provide a access point so your can connect phone, table or laptop out in the field.

The camera records 720p @ 30fps, so will still get some respectable footage. For $89 the D1 Pro comes bundled with a 120, 160 & 210 degree interchangeable lens, perfect for every application. There are a large range of features you need to take a look at, like 20 GPIO’s on the pro version, that includes some PWM output. All these features can be controlled via your program running on freedom loving Linux 🙂

I am sure you will think of way of working one of these boards into your next project…
