RunnerPi: An Awesome POV Raspberry Pi Camera!

Whilst browsing the internet this morning, I came across a fun, Raspberry Pi project that I wanted to share with you all. It’s called RunnerPi and looks like an awesome project to make!

In terms of skill set to make this project, all you need is an overview of the Raspberry Pi, the ability to use a command line, and of course, patience.


RunnerPi - An Awesome POV Camera For The Raspberry Pi


By using a variety of parts, such as GoPro mounting hardware, and the Head/Chest mount straps, this Raspberry Pi user was able to create a WiFi streaming POV camera. The Pi model he is using here is the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, with an official Raspberry Pi Camera. He also suggests using a a good WiFi Module however, now that the official Raspberry Pi WiFI Module is out, you could use that.

Reminder: It needs to be the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B as this is the only model that will livestream the footage.
