The DIY Raspberry Pi Sprite Camera

By Anthony Thurston on August 6th 2013

Sometimes you have to marvel at the ingenuity of individuals making DIY projects. I recently came across this walking sprite advertisement of a camera, all DIY and powered by Raspberry Pi.


The neat sprite branded camera was developed as part of a contest entry for Sprite’s “Prizes that Advertise for Us” contest being run out of Romania. The guys at RoboFun, the team who designed and developed this entry, built this camera using parts that any of us could find. Though, if I am being honest I would likely replace that terrible green case with something a bit more aesthetically pleasing.

They even released the python code that they developed to run the camera, so in theory you could go out and build this DIY camera yourself.Of Course you would likely want to do so without the Sprite branding and without the speaker that screams “Sprite!” when you take a picture.

You can learn more about this project from the robofun website, including the python code, and image samples from the raspberry pi camera module.  Here are some sample image taken with the camera…
