Make A Cheap 360 Video Camera Using A Raspberry Pi

360 video isn’t exactly the most common or useful video type around, but that doesn’t mean it’s not cool. Most of 360 cameras are pretty pricey, but if you just want to experiment, Tinkernut shows us that the Raspberry Pi can do the trick.

Instead of using a multiple camera setup like you usually would for 360 video, Tinkernut hacks together a way to use a $US15 ($20) panoramic accessory alongside the Pi Camera Module to grab a spherical video.

The end result is video that while not super high fidelity, is still pretty cool nonetheless. Head over to Tinkernut for the full guide, including a parts list.
