Build Your Own Raspberry Pi Touchscreen WiFi-Enabled Camera for About $150

Building your own touchscreen, WiFi-enabled digital camera might seem like the most expensive of photo-related DIY projects, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, Adafruit can show you how to put one together for less than $ 150!

The camera they’ve created uses a Raspberry Pi, the Pi’s camera module, their own PiTFT touchscreen, a USB battery pack, a WiFi dongle and, well, that’s actually about it. The grand total for all these parts comes out to less than 150 bucks.

DIY skill level required to put this one together would probably rank at the intermediate level, mainly because there is some soldering involved, but we see no reason why a beginner might not be up to the task given appropriate supervision/guidance from someone a bit more advanced.

The final product, if you end up creating one, is pretty nifty. You can snap pictures, apply filters and even wirelessly send your photos out to Dropbox. And if you’ve got access to a 3D printer and the necessary skill to design something cool, you can create a custom case for your camera instead of the rubber bands Adafruit made do with. Sure, quality-wise it’s not going to be anything to write home about, but heck, you built it yourself!

For detailed step-by-step instructions and many more pictures that show you what the camera is capable of, how to use it and what the build process looks like along the way, head over to the Adafruit website by clicking here.
