  • Raspberry Pi: camera video stream to host

    While playing with the raspberry pi camera I found it hard to know if the camera was working or trying to tweak settings. I was using raspivid -f to preview the video. This was limited with being open for 5 seconds ( can be adjusted using the -t flag and passing it seconds in milliseconds ). The solution was to open a streaming video from the raspberry pi and view it on my host ( mac ).

  • Raspberry Pi

    People often ask me what is possible with the power of the raspberry pi. I’m have a tendency to buy numerous microcontrollers / cheap standalone controllers, just to see how they work and if they could prove more useful to me than the raspberry pi. The release of the Pi Zero for $5 pretty much put the nail in the coffin when it comes to IoT ( Internet of Things ) work for prototyping.

  • Week 1: Initial live stream thoughts

    The start of learning / starting something new usually has a rocky start. There is a lot to learn when creating an entertaining and informative product. After my first week of streaming I have documented and put together a list of things to work on. Some things I need to work on:

    1. Have a better idea of what to accomplish during the stream / be able to explain it
    2. Stop over engineering things ( Start Small then expand after a strong base project )
    3. Estimate
    4. Do research prior to prove proof of concepts
