Ben made us a nice design for the Base Stations which is what this post is about. I only made very small tweeks due to availability and sizes of materials.

Original Design: Where in space 1.01

Making a prototype

Unfortunately, there wasn’t any available plastic clear tubing in the diameter we needed. Also I thought to flip the camera around so it lies flat on the top of the surface of the white PVC piping.

Next level shit: Where in space 1.02

Functions

  1. House a Raspberry Pi in a secure and stable position

  2. Allow cabling to flow through

  3. Cover any exposed cabling close the the raspberry pi

  4. Hold a camera in the head of the pod in a secure and stable position

  5. Allow the camera full 360 view of its surrounding context
