The possibilities of the Raspberry Pi Linux computer continue to grow. Although availability of the tiny $25 computer is still very tight, the development team is moving to extend the platform’s capability with an add-on camera. The current imaging hardware is 14 MP, but the Raspberry Pi blog cautions that this may well get reduced before a public release in order to keep down final costs.
Along with pictures of the camera and the way they plan to connect it to to the board (a ribbon cable), the team provided a preliminary sample of the camera in action:
Do you have a Raspberry Pi yet? Does this camera give you a new flood of ideas for how to use it? Let us know in the comments.
