DIY body cam with a Raspberry Pi

What's Next?

This project has lots of opportunities for expansion: You could use a teeny-tiny USB camera for even better covert operation. You could run the device headless without the touchscreen display and start the Python script when the Rasp Pi boots up. Alternatively, you could dispense with WiFi and just use a cellular module. Instead of sending the photos to your email account, you could address them to your favorite whistle-blowing website or news outlet.

Finally, make sure you know your rights, respect others' rights, and operate your body cam in an ethical, civilized, and lawful manner.
