What a great way to recycle an old camera!— Douglas
If you have an old Polaroid camera collecting dust in a cupboard or drawer you may be interested in a new project shared via the Mitexla website that adds a thermal printer and a Raspberry Pi mini PC together with a web camera. Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about this unique build.
“It feels like only the other day I was going on about an instant camera that uses thermal paper being one of my abandoned dreams. I abandoned it because I found out it had already been done, and isn’t particularly hard. But! Soon after, I decided that that’s a terrible way to see things, and if we stuck by that, we’d never get much done, let alone learn anything. So here is my attempt at an instant camera that prints onto thermal paper. This project was partly done as a collaboration with Tom, who knows a lot about Linux and whose face is visible in some of the pictures.”
