StereoPi used as USB device

  • StereoPi USB gadget (RNDIS device)

The Raspberry Pi Compute Module powering the StereoPi has the ability to operate as an USB device thanks to an USB-OTG hardware within the processor. This means that we can connect it to the PC and make it appear as an USB stick, a serial interface, or – as exposed in this article – as an external network interface. It is very powerful but it comes with a few limitations due to the architecture of the Raspberry ecosystem followed by the StereoPi. Let’s see how it works.

The Art Of Stereoscopic Photo, part 2

  • The Art of Stereoscopic Photo

Introduction

In the previous article we reviewed the main rules and principles that allow you to get high-quality stereo photographs. In this article we will focus on the practical side of things. We will discuss how to make a simple DIY-style stereoscopic camera from a StereoPi, how to take your first stereo photographs and process them in the StereoPhoto Maker app.
We’ll use a regular mobile phone for a viewfinder, a controller for our camera and a monitor to view the resulting images.

Hacking Skybox on Oculus Go for StereoPi live streaming

  • StereoPi Skybox on Oculus Go

I’ll skip a lengthy intro and go straight to the point.

So, I have a stereo camera capable of outputting H264 video over different protocols, and I have an Oculus Go headset. How do I watch a stereo live stream from the cam on the headset? Preferably with minimal latency and locally, so YouTube and other RTMP video services are a no go.

Skipping ahead, here’s what I’ve managed to achieve: first, I played a pre-recorded video file from StereoPi, and then I played a live stream from StereoPi (MPEG-TS through UDP).

The Art Of Stereoscopic Photo

  • The Art Of Stereoscopic Photo

With the StereoPi, you can enter the world of stereoscopic photography! The art of stereoscopic photography actually began in the 18th century and the Stereoscopic Society, one of the oldest photo societies, has existed since 1893. This past year they celebrated their 125th anniversary and, as you can imagine, they’ve accumulated a lot of experience during this time. In this article, they’ve kindly agreed to share their experience with us! We hope it helps you make great stereoscopic photos!
