Weird and wonderful Raspberry Pi hacks

Necessity may be the mother of invention, but having a $35 Raspberry Pi computer helps too.

Picture perfect Raspberry Pi

Linux software engineer and photographer David Hunt had been thinking about embedding a computer in a DSLR camera for years, but always found high costs to be a barrier. But then came the Raspberry Pi to smash that hurdle. The $35 PCB allowed him to repurpose one of his old battery grips into a camera accessory that can transmit just-shot images in real-time to a computer via Wi-Fi, and also control the camera remotely from a computer. "There’s plenty of work to be done on the software side of things, but the prototype is working," he says.

Of course, if he gets too frustrated, he can just pick up an Eye-Fi wireless card for his camera. But that might be a bit too easy.
