3D Printed Video Glasses for Raspberry Pi

If you missed your chance to buy a Google Glass, try this project. You can hack this wearable video display to make your own glasses ­mounted wearable computer, powered with a Raspberry Pi.

Our 3D Printed design turns this display into a google glass like form factor. It easily clips to your prescription glasses, and can display any kind of device with Composite Video like a Raspberry Pi.

A pair of these wearable video glasses sets you back about 100 bucks, and the 3d printed parts are a free download on Thingiverse. I printed these out to fit my glasses, but with a little CAD hacking, it can be adjusted to attach to nearly anything so you can customize the design to match your style.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
